SHIELDS is so comfortable and soft, light and airy but incredibly warm. Pure heaven to touch and wear. This gentle and delicate shawl can be for a small person (a special baby) or to wrap your shoulders when the twilight visits, just a little something to wear when the darkness descends and the air becomes chilly.
Uncomplicated and effortless to make – a rhythmic pattern repeat that is soothing to work; garter-stitch borders and an intricate lacy motif makes up the design. Just a simple rectangle; with no seams and two threads to sew in - one at the beginning and one at the end.
Cast-off loosely. I do suggest you block; wet thoroughly, lie out on a towel to dry naturally making sure to pull out to define shape.
