This is a super light-weight, fluffy shawlette with a hint of ruffley goodness to step it up a notch. This shawlette is plain yet flouncy…
There are two options in this pattern: you can choose to bind off directly after the ruffle, or knit for another few increase repeats – each gives a very different look.
You can stuff it in your pocket when you don’t need it, and pull it out easily when you do – just shake it out a bit and it opens up beautifully.
