Garnet Dreams

$5.50 USD  

This cute little sideways shawl is quick to knit and perfect for a beautiful skein of hand dyed yarn like this gorgeous Baah! Yarn La Jolla in Garnet. The garter stitch body will show off any pretty colour, variegated or solid. The border combines knit and purl stitches along with a pretty eyelet lace pattern. The easy sideways construction allows for any amount of yarn to be used, making it a great one-skein project.
