Are you up for a bit of adventure with your knitting? The Mint Latte shawl gives you just that! Moving from a whirlwind to gently curved stripes dotted with eyelets and ending with a lovely lace edging, Mint Latte will keep you entertained along the way.
Using a unique construction, the shawl will show off the colour variations of your precious variegated or self-stripping skeins. While it might look complicated, fear not, Mint Latte is easy to knit. Video tutorials are provided where necessary. And while being asymmetric, the shawl will still wrap comfortably around your shoulders just like a triangle shawl. So pack your needles and skeins and join the adventure!
