Design Information

The Gorgette shawl provides a great introduction to shawl knitting. The stockinette stitch body is rhythmic and quickly becomes a mindless project suitable for travel or just something to pick up casually in free moments. The lace edging is worked after the crescent shawl is completed and may pose a challenge for the newest of knitters, but can be quickly mastered!

Note: When choosing a substitute yarn, look for a single-ply light fingering weight with a silk blend to achieve the same drape & sheen as the sample.
