Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting

Pattern Description:

A friend wanted a shawl for a gift for a bride. After looking through existing patterns, I decided to adapt one of mine that I had written a few years ago, inspired by an angora shawl knit in the fifties.

This shawl gently drapes over the shoulders and neatly closes in the front by pulling one end through the other. Perfect in white for a bride.

Contrasting textures create a lacy and elegant effect. The "closure" is a little tricky, but the directions are very detailed. An easy, quick project for the intermediate knitter, challenging for the advanced beginner.
