Southern Sky Easy Knit Shawl

By: Patons Design Team from yarnspirations.com

Southern Sky Easy Knit Shawl

If you're looking for a versatile knit shawl with lovely colors, try knitting this Southern Sky Easy Knit Shawl. Bunched up on the neck, it looks like a cowl, but spread out, it has the length and shape of a shawl. The white-speckled blue playfully contrasts the pale orange for a unique, complementary coloring. This shawl is especially lovely against more neutral tones, which help the gorgeous colors stand out. Simple and delicate, this can be a summer shawl or a spring shawl, as it is light as air and wonderful for warmer months.
