Pattern Description:

Whether in night dress or an evening gown, every woman needs diamonds to distract from her scheming. Well, this shawl has diamonds aplenty. Enough, I would reckon, to conceal the conspiracies of one plot, or maybe twenty. Then perhaps, just perhaps, an X will mark the spot where the murderous heart skips a beat.

Knit in two halves then grafted together in the middle, this shawl easily flows across and off the shoulders. A wide garter stitch border surrounds the stockinette central motifs, providing an elegant and effortless frame for an elegant and effortless piece.
