A cable and lace border along a stockinette body gives this sideways shawl a touch of elegance. Worked in a soft and squishy merino wool from Indigo Moon, it is a delight to wear. One skein of any fingering weight yarn is required. Size is adjustable, depending on the amount of yarn used. The shawl is worked from one end to the other and the edging is worked along with the body. One skein of Indigo Moon Island Time Merino Fingering was used here. The colour shown is Daylily. Choose to work from either the written instructions or charted instructions.
