Levity Shawl


This vintage-style shawl is ideal for lovers of garter stitch. 
Wrap yourself up and take in some theatre at the park or go for a whimsical stroll.

This shawl is made in two sections: the first is a crescent shape made up of garter stitch and the second is “knitted on” to the first section so there is no seaming. 
The lacey “rays” pattern is very easy, but fun to make (and looks really impressive!). 

This shawl is knit with two skeins of fingering weight yarn and has one size.

This is a 6-page pattern with written instructions. 
$5 USD.
The pattern will be emailed to you within 24 hours.
