Simple elegance is key in this light and airy design worked from the bottom up. A gentle crescent shape wraps gracefully around your shoulders for a voluminous shawl, or for a petite shawlette that can also be worn as a scarf. The winding lace pattern flows into a woven-look slip stitch, which hides the short rows that create the gently curved shape.
