Lolatude is a dramatic boomerang shawlette or shawl knit from a hand-dyed sock blank. The shaping and knitting on this piece is beyond easy! What is fun is how it is finished off… with three peyote stitch beads that graduate in size.

The pattern includes directions for getting the most out of your yarn and for making Lolatude bigger should you desire! It also includes detailed tutorials for making Peyote Stitch beads… which is SUPER easy!
