by Ambah O'Brien is a large, cozy, striped shawl. Squishy garter stitch makes
this a snugly winter accessory, and the decorative picot border along the
curved edge gives it a delicate flair. This shawl is long and wide, narrowing to
a curved point at each end, making it perfect for draping over shoulders or
wrapping several times around your neck. Elinya is worked entirely in knit
stitch, making the garment a great beginner’s project or excellent TV knitting.
