Knit in this beautiful alpaca/merino blend yarn, this shawl is both pretty and warm. Traditionally constructed from a garter stitch tab beginning, the pretty flower lace detail is easily memorised and develops naturally in to the zigzag lace border, which flutes gently to create the delicate edging. Easily styled, this shawl is modern enough to wear casually with jeans and a crisply ironed shirt or more formally over a strappy dress. It takes less than one 50gm ball of yarn to make and has only four purl stitches in the whole garment, so can be very quickly knitted - the perfect holiday knit or a project for a knitter in a hurry!
