Amelie has a feel of elegant French chic with classic stripes worked in garter stitch and bursts of easy lace. Amelie is worked sideways with beads added to the lace panels at the centre of the shawl. This is a big, cosy shawl which is long enough to wrap around your neck and deep enough to be worn as a shawl to keep you warm.
This pattern includes four short row sections and here’s a video tutorial.
