It's hard not to love the stripey pattern on this Turquoise Hepta Shawl. Pulled together by the lace border, it's truly an essential summer shawl. Knit shawls like this one make perfect coverups for formal events, such as weddings or Sunday morning church, and the light and springy colors make it a perfect accessory for the warmer seasons. It only takes three balls of yarn to make this stunning shawl, so what are you waiting for? Try it in different colors if you want to get creative with this knitting pattern.
