This shawl is the perfect project to experiment with basic, mindless lace.
In summer we always need a shawl: a sudden breeze or a cool night. Also in winter we need a shawl, to fight the cold days.
We are always happy to pull out a light but warm shawl to make everybody go Oooooohhhhhh!
Play with colours, beads, and tassels: go bold, enjoy it!
