Forever Summer is a beautifully airy, asymmetrical garter stitch shawl with striking colors and laid back, easy knit lace. This is the kind of shawl you knit while lounging poolside and throw across your shoulders on a beach vacation. Feel Good Yarn Co’s SilverSpun® Silk is a delicious treat to the needles and lends itself well to a shawl with lots of beautiful drape. This shawl is knit sideways, from tip to tip, and is finished off with a generous handful of picots and a special extra side panel of lace and stripes. Because one can never have too much lace and too many stripes!

Note: Because this is a smaller shawl, you can easily substitute a fingering weight yarn for the lace weight and make it slightly bigger!
