Sweet Summer Shawl

5.00 USD  

This light and airy all-season shawlette is the perfect summer project. Worked in one piece from end to end, the garter stitch body is quick to knit and the lace edging pattern is easy to follow. The shawlette is completely reversible. A single skein of fingering or sock yarn is all it takes. The pattern is adjustable to the amount of yarn available. Choose to work from either the written instructions or charted instructions.
