Bonita has been brewing in the back of my mind for many years, it is quite wonderful to see it come to fruition. A beautiful addition to any wardrobe, Bonita was created in a quest for the perfect red shawl to brighten any day, designed with the flamboyance of a Flamenco dancer in mind. Knit from the top-down, short rows shape the body before a ruffled lace edging completes this stunning shawl. Choose yarn with a touch of luxe, either 2 strands of laceweight held together or a single strand of fingering weight and go bold with your colour choice, or knit your Bonita in a soft shade to complement any wardrobe.

Choose between the small or large size and enjoy this knit - the striking lace is so much simpler to work than it looks.
