This unique design is a study in unusual construction—it is worked neither top-down nor bottom-up. The circles are stitched first and attached seamlessly, and then the body is worked out from either side. To make a smaller, one-skein shawlette, simply eliminate the top or bottom portion of the shawl. The shimmery silk bits in the yarn make this shawl an eye-catching showpiece.
