This just might be my favourite shawl I’ve ever designed. I love the elongated triangle shape, the cozy garter stitched paired with just a wee bit of elegant lace, a simple cable and the show stopping fringe! That fringe is really the star here, and it’s spectacular. I’m considering putting fringe on all my knits from now on. In case that fringe has you concerned about all the tiny pieces of yarn you think you’re going to be cutting and tying, fear not! The fringe is knit with the body using a really cool drop stitch technique that I think you’re going to love. It’s a knitting magic trick!
