The shawl is knit from end to end all in one piece. It’s a shallow triangle shape with long ends. The overall lace pattern used on the shawl is an easy Turkish lace stitch. Although it has a right and wrong side, the wrong side is just as attractive as the right side. It’s a comfy and stylish accessory for lounging around on the weekends or for heading out to the farmer’s market.
