Whether summer breezes or winter gales are in your forecast, this elegant shawl is just what you need. The curve of the shawl helps to keep it in place when worn as a summer coverup. The generous size is perfect to wrap up closely when winter calls.

This shawl is larger than a half circle, like a very full crescent. The edging is knitted on, which provides a stretchy edge for blocking.
