"Enough, and Adequate. These are the words that my dictionary uses to define Sufficient and that I use to describe this shawlette. One skein of Unplanned Peacock Sudio’s Twisty Sock is enough to knit a shawlette that is adequate to wrap around your shoulders on those short sleeve days where you need a little “something” but not a full size shawl or sweater. This top down heart shaped shawl starts with a garter tab, with all shaping done in in the plain section of the shawl with a slightly sassy lace border to complete the piece."
