Living wild

Feel like a free spirit when you knit this bohemian style with a sense of wild shawl. Giving you almost instant gratification because of how quickly it works up. The tassels are optional and add a bit of a whimsical, even a bold touch. The fringed cotton yarn makes even more interesting as the flat cotton tape has tiny fringes all around the edges. Let loose!
