Kite is a fully reversible shawl that is shaped like an angle. the simple lace pattern forms triangles along the inner edge of the angle and shows off beautifully around your neck while wearing.

This special shape assures that the shawl stays around your shoulder and doesn’t slip. You may either wear it with the tip of the outer edge to your front and then wrap the two tails around your neck and again to your front or with the tip to your back and let the tails just hang down your front for the small size or cross the tails and tie them behind your back for the large size. You also may wear it as a stole with the tip on one shoulder and one tail thrown over the other shoulder – just play with nearly endless possiblities!
