A light weight shawl made in a 4ply cotton blend yarn is the ideal accessory and is inspired by lazy summer days.

The pattern features a simple body with an incorporated border that can be easily adapted and made to any size you want – just weigh your yarn before you start and once you’ve used up almost half of the total, start the decreases!
