Try your first steps in lace knitting with this elegant beginner-friendly shawl. Worked in one piece from the top down, this shawl project works up quickly and easily in &Make DK, with the beautiful blend creating a delightfully warm piece that can be easily worn across the seasons. The shawl pattern has three options; the classic shawl knit in one colour, a two-colour striped shawl, or a four-colour striped shawl. Choose your favourite shawl option, feel at ease knitting from a beginner-friendly pattern, and your finished shawl will both complement and enhance your style on any occasion.
