Peachy Shoulder Shawl

Featuring a pretty lace pattern down the center back, this classic knit shawl pattern is sure to become a treasured wardrobe staple. The Peachy Shoulder Shawl boasts an elegant drape and hangs perfectly around the shoulders for a warm, functional knit. We love the bright peach color as shown in the picture, but any other sport weight yarn would look equally as lovely.

My sister in law just had to put her parents in a nursing home and I inherited her stash. There is a garbage bag full of luster sheen yarn and I've been trying to find patterns to use it up. If this patterns works out I'll use it to kill that stash and hopefully donate quite a few to the nursing facility that her mom is now living in.

I am going to make one in either salmon or watermellon color!
