PEACE LOVE JOY SHAWL

What do you get when you combine 3 gorgeous skeins of hand-dyed mohair yarn with an easy-to-memorize, easy-to-execute stitch pattern? PEACE, LOVE & JOY, of course! PEACE from a relaxing stitch pattern. LOVE courtesy of super-floofy hand-dyed yarn. And JOY? Well that comes from a finished shawl that is supremely soft, lighter than air, and practically bursting with tiny tassels. If that’s not JOY I don’t know what is!

YARN
This pattern works exceptionally well with almost any mohair lace yarn. From delightfully speckled hand-dyed skeins to commercial balls of knit-worthy floof, as long as you have sufficient yardage, the only limitation is your imagination!
