Truly Myrtle - Zelda Shawl Pattern for Ladies in 5-ply / Sport
A striking crescent shawl knitted in sport weight yarn, Zelda looks great worn draped around your shoulders with her long slender ends curling to the front, or snuggled up twice around your neck.
The relaxing garter body is created with simple increases and the textured border is knitted entirely with slipped stitches. Every row uses just one colour at a time!
