This shawl is a deep crescent shape with a circular opening for the neck. The design allows it to be slipped over your shoulders like a cardigan, without needing to be held or pinned. It has enough stockinette to be a quick knit, while maintaining a shoulder-framing panel of lace. A bit of cashmere in the yarn provides a lovely drape. It’s equally suitable for a dressy evening out or a sweet summer tea party.
