Sweet Viola Shawl

Sweet VIola Shawl


As a new knitter some years back, I noticed that my eyes were always drawn to the beauty of lace yarns, but fear of lace knitting caused me to quickly veer away! Sweet Viola was designed for those knitters, like me, who need to gently ease into knitting with delicate yarns. Lots of stockinette, worked from the top down, with a gentle lace pattern on the edge, produces a stunning star-shaped shawlette, to be worn with pride.
