This lightweight shawlette is perfect to wrap around your shoulders in the summertime - especially during those dog days where life slows down and tall glasses of lemonade are a necessity. This shawlette is great for stashbusting -- it uses about half a skein of two fingering weight colors. This pattern features a long stretch of garter stitch (for when you are knitflixing!), mosaic colorwork, and simple lacework.
