Contentment Shawl

This pretty one-skein crescent-shaped shawl is worked from the bottom up with a pretty lace border reminiscent of the lace pattern of the Contentment Cowl. The stockinette stitch body is shaped with short rows and finishes with a lovely eyelet edge at the top of the shawl. One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock was used here. The colour shown is Oak.
