Two-Colour Asymmetrical Shawl // Design By Mindy Wilkes
Delicate lace melds beautifully, perfectly, with the supple texture of garter stitch in this airy, lightweight shawl. The asymmetrical shaping is simple, yet engaging, while the picot-bind off ensures the most finished look. Even on the most bitter of winter mornings, the silky lace comforts and delights.
