Charlotte is a lace and garter stitch shawl with a Moebius collar.
The shaping resembles a capelet but the garment was designed as an alternative to our beloved open shawls which can, however, be difficult to wear during everyday activities.
The collar falls loosely around the neck, and back neck shaping is added with short rows. The lower back section of the capelet is also shaped with short rows to provide a nicely curved and slightly longer lower back area.
