Kalimna is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning beautiful.
The Kalimna shawl by Ambah O'Brien features a delicate lace
edging with garter stitch body that is simpler to knit than it appears.
The long, shallow crescent shape is designed to be draped over the shoulders or
wrapped around like a scarf. With two sizes to choose from you only need 463-876 yards of fingering weight yarn. Pattern provides both written and charted
instructions and is worked from side to side.
Choose between a Large 2 skein Shawl or a Small 1 skein Shawl.
