Inspired by the simple almost plain beauty of a white arum lily. Sized as a one-skein shawlette or two-skein shawl, this piece is a crescent-like shaped shawl knit from tip-to-tip. There are no long rows and it just seems to fly off the needles.

A simple cable and twisted stitch motif, combines with stocking stitch, and a soft lace edging to give an elegantly beautiful accessory to warm your shoulders.
