Laffitte Shawl was inspired by my friend’s beautiful cardigan….from the 1st time I ever saw her wearing I always said “This would make a lovely shawl”
Now Laffitte is here to stay! This topdown shawl is a simple garter stitch design that is classy and clean. A few yarnovers help to give it’s marvelous points, and finishes with nice clean I-cord border to shape out the edge.
Laffitte is knit using 4 colors of Malabrigo Lace. Two strands of yarn held together throughout the entire shawl. You will need several sets of needles, interchangeable needles work great for this project.
