I’ve been teasing,IMG_8840

This little shawl is part of the Malabrigo Quickies Program and, let me tell you, the yarn is to. die. for. It’s soft and it’s gorgeous and it’s subtle and it’s absolutely perfect for summer knitting and year-round wear!IMG_9446

The entire shawl uses just shy of 2 skeins of Malabrigo’s Silkpaca, but ends up a generous size that looks great wrapped around your neck bandana-style or draped over the shoulders with a nice evening gown (or at least I imagine it would look nice this way, I don’t have any reason to wear evening gowns…)IMG_9645

I’m especially pleased with the shape this shawl makes,IMG_9444

The center point is deep enough to add extra coverage or warmth, but isn’t as deep as most shawls which can be overwhelming sometimes.  I think it’s good practice to have a variety of neck accessories in one’s wardrobe.IMG_9649

The shawl pattern can be found on Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy.
