I love frilly clothes. Anything with a flounce or a bit of lace makes me happy. And there is nothing like two rows of lace to make you feel a bit flirtatious and girly. The basic structure of the shawl is simple and knits up quickly. The knitted-on lace edging may scare a few of you... so with that in mind the pattern includes three links to free video tutorials I did for this shawl. I know... it always helps to see something in action! happy knitting! Christina PS: there is a separate pattern for the "baby" shawl shown in one of the pictures. It is called: "Baby Ruffles."
