Forest Petals Shawl

Bright, airy, and whimsical, this Tunisian wrap is very mod and elegant. The entrelac diamonds are balanced with open space, yet the wool-silk blend yarn gives it a surprising amount of warmth. This shawl can be completed with one skein of the suggested yarn. Intermediate skills are recommended.
