This shawl is inspired by the happiness of knitting and yarn. With this design you can showcase the most beautiful speckled yarn from your stash and combine it with deep or bright solid colored yarn. The stockinette stitch body of the shawl is fun mindless knitting that can be done while watching TV and the lace part requires a little bit of concentration to keep those yarn overs in place.

Lace charts are also written out so chart reading skills are not necessary.
