This worsted weight, semi-circle shawl is a relaxing and quick knit. Knit up in a cushy, naturally dyed, woolen spun yarn with alternating stripes of stockinette stitch and sweetly simple lace. This shawl layers beautifully over tanks and sweet spring dresses, just as well as wrapping up warmly around your neck to keep the brisk autumn and winter winds at bay.
