Shimmy Shawl

By Anniken Allis

A beaded, knitted lace shawl composed of different repeating panels, the Alpaca and Extra Fine Wool blend yarn is so delicate it sways a little with the body, giving an endlessly elegant result. It flows whichever way it is worn, traditionally draped over the shoulders, or worn more casually as a neckerchief.
