Looking for a delightfully fluffy layering piece for when the temperatures are low? A knit that combines both relaxing stockinette as well as some lace patterning? Look no further! The Kashjmier by Susanne Visch has you covered. And yes, pun intended! It can, of course, also be made in a different material.
This shawl is worked from the top-down in one piece. Both written and charted instructions for the patterned edging are included. The pattern is available in 3 sizes; the shawl pictured is in the smallest size.Sizes
