Swooping from smooth garter-and-stocking-stitch stripes into softly undulating textured lace, Belle is a chic triangular shawl with a gorgeous lace border and stunning stripes, finished off with a fabulous picot bind-off.
Drape her across your shoulders or wrap her around your neck to keep warm. Her striped body is relaxing and enjoyable to knit and the lace is a simple combination of familiar stitches that together create a stunning finish.
Feminine yet unfussy, Belle uses two skeins of treasured, soft, fingering-weight yarn, with the option of frivolous mohair/silk for the lace border.
Including charted and written instructions, Belle is ideal for newish knitters wanting to expand their skills.
