The End of the Box Shawl

Sale price$5.99

Avoid the bickering over the last of the festive chocolates, and take yourself away for some much-needed me time with your favorite jewel shade yarn, hook, and an absorbing pattern. The elegant lace is a four-row repeat which, once mastered you can chat and make. This shawl is designed to make the very most of a short skein of 4ply/fingering yarn and has a very discrete Christmas tree motif but the lacy design lends itself well to spring or summer wear.
