This beautiful lace shawl features a unique but not overly fussy lace pattern. Tiny 2-stitch cables and simple yarn overs and decreases create a lovely lace fabric that flows but isn’t too lightweight, making this shawl the perfect staple for crisp fall weather.

Simple eyelet garter panels separate the lace sections. The shawl is finished off with long, delicate wisps of fringe that help showcase your favorite variegated yarn.
