Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've made this, there are mistakes in the pattern. I sent bernat an email of the errors I found and they thanked me and said corrections would be made, so I'm not sure if this copy of the pattern is pre or post corrections.

Shawls are a great piece to wear all year long. You never know when you're going to want to throw one over your shoulders. I especially love the feminine border on this design.

This could have been a plain looking shawl but the lovely border really takes it up a notch in style. The color combinations in the photo are very nice, but you could do sort of an ombre effect with different shades of the same color, or use related colors like aqua, blue, and green.
