Les Abeilles


A silky little triangle, worked from hem to neck with an ornately sculpted hem. The easy-to-work stitch patterns and wrong-side rest rows make this piece a great first shawl project, or a fun, relaxing weekend traveler for experienced knitters. The ornate look belies its simplicity of construction; this piece knits up quickly and effortlessly to make a dazzling last-minute gift. Pattern designed by Anne Hanson.
