Bold, yet highly sophisticated sapphire-colored yarn combines beautifully with a design that mixes lace with intermittent bands of garter stitch.
The yarn is an unbelievably silky merino blend that comes in a rich color palette and practically glides through your fingers as you knit.
The result is a sumptuously soft triangular shawl that drapes beautifully as a scarf and adds the perfect touch of warmth.
This shawl is knit from the top center down with increases positioned to create the versatile triangular shape. It's knit in one piece, with only the optional fringe to add in finishing.

As the headline says I´m a non shawl person and I get so frustrated by all the patterns there are to make shawls in the magazines and on the net.
And then my eyes found this one........What can I say?
It´s the most beautyful shawl I´ve ever seen and of course I started knitting at once when the pattern was downloaded.
I´ve been knitting for more than 40 years and is quite good at it.
