Selata Shawl PDF

$6.00 Each

The Nelkin Designs Selata Shawl is a gorgeous shawl with many possibilities. You can choose to knit it in one of two sizes, in either one color or two colors, and with or without beads. This shawl is worked from the top down, with increases placed so that shawl has a square bottom edge. Unlike triangle-shaped shawls, this square shape lays comfortably on your shoulders with less chance of falling down your back. Since this shawl is knit primarily in garter stitch it is a quick, fun, and simple project.
