My how summer flies by, but this lacy summer shawl is the perfect accessory to cover bare shoulders on a breezy summer evening. The butterfly and lace motif are accented by a knotted openwork trellis, reminiscent of butterflies happily fluttering through your summer garden. This shawl is worked by sections with increases made only on the right side rows. This creates a gentle curve for a shallow half round shawl. I recommend using natural plant fiber yarn in a DK or worsted weight, but you may use any DK or worsted weight yarn you wish.

Materials 380 yards (347 m) worsted weight yarn. Shown in Bonnie’s Bamboo Colorway: Terra Cotta Size US8 circular knitting needle 16" or longer.
