Nubbly garter stitch, jaunty stripes, crisp angles, luxurious yarn, and a sleek edging add up to one fabulous knit. The generous shawl and cute shawlette are knit in one piece with sportweight yarn. To create the unique angles, Shipshape is worked with simple increases and decreases, and to give your creation that perfectly polished look, Shipshape is finished with an attached i-cord edging. Shipshape is sure to be a versatile accessory all year round!
