CLASSIC ELITE YARNS
Alpaca Sox Shawlette (Free)
Alpaca Sox does make a lovely pair of socks but its name is misleading—it's a wonderful yarn for many kinds of projects including this shawl. This shawl can be easily made larger by increasing the number of stitches cast on by a multiple of 42 sts (400, 442 or 484, etc), and by working the repeats for each side chart an extra time for each additional 42 sts cast on.
