Melanie Berg Chimaira PDF
Chimaira is a wonderfully light shawl that makes clever use of short rows to create an asymmetrical and eye-catching color play. The shawl is worked outwards
from the center of the top edge, with increases at the beginning and end of each row as well as around the off-centered spine.
