Fifth Avenue Shawl
The Fifth Avenue shawl features a shallow triangle of patterned mesh that drapes nicely over the shoulders or around the hips for a touch of sass. Because blocking is not required, it’s great for acrylic yarns as well as natural fiber.
The pattern includes instructions for two borders: a small ruffled border and a more tailored flat border. The shawl’s size is easily adjusted following the directions provided.
If done in lace or fingering weight yarns, this shawl makes a great four seasons wrap. A slightly heavier yarn would make a colder weather wrap.
Written instructions, photos, and charts included.
