Kate's Ruffled Shawl

By:

A royal treat! This adorable knit shawl pattern was inspired by a similar item worn by the beloved Kate Middleton. Kate's Ruffled Shawl is a fun shawl to throw on for a quick errand or whenever you feel like looking a little more polished. This knit ruffle shawl looks great in green (as seen on Kate), but another solid color would be just as charming. Cute and completely versatile, this pattern is a great project for the intermediate knitter looking to master the ruffled hem technique.
