A SUPER FAST knit shawl, with a purpose! This is so quick and easy to knit. Something for a bit of warmth, as well as a fashion statement. Long front ties, so you can tie the front and not let it drag down. Loose knit on US # 17 needles. Openwork stitches, is very pretty for Summer nights or over a bathing suit! Shawl measures about 16½" down center top to point bottom. Measures 43½ at widest part, from tie point to point. Uses light weight worsted yarn. A beginner can start this easy increasing!
