A simple, yet fun, shawl (with Sport, DK, Fingering and Lace yarn weight options), adorned with 2 handmade (by you!) tassels and a few beads. It’s the perfect project to experiment with basic, mindless lace.
In summer, as much as in winter or fall, we always need a shawl: a sudden breeze or a cool night and we are happy to pull out of our purse a light but warm shawl to make everybody go Oooooohhhhhh!
Have fun knitting this quick, entertaining shawl!
Play with colours, beads, and tassels: go bold, enjoy it!
