Shantay, meaning stone/beautiful. Stones and rocks have meaning for me as my name Petra means rock, now together with my last name Breakstone, I say I have a theme going on…

This shawl certainly conveys a sense of romance~
It starts out knitted flat with the gorgeous bottom lace border, followed by an eyelet section and a running cable stitch that moves all the way up to the two color Garter stitch border.
When knitted with the yarn as shown it feels wonderfully luxurious~

The size is a generous 71.5” long and 16” in height.

The test knitted pattern is written and has a chart for your knitting pleasure.
