Kalimna is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning Beautiful.
The Kalimna shawl features a delicate lace edging with garter stitch body that is simpler to knit than it appears.
The long, shallow crescent shape is designed to be draped over the shoulders or wrapped around like a scarf. This pattern provides both written and charted instructions and is worked from side to side.
