Malena is an elegant shawl with a flair for the dramatic. It's dressy enough to wear with an evening gown, or as an accent piece for every day. The intricate-looking chevron-and-eyelet pattern is deceptively simple to knit and easy to memorize. Gorgeous in a solid color, Malena would make a lovely showcase for that special sock yarn, too.
