Purple Rain shawlette
The lace section featuring nuup rain drops is worked straight first and then the crescent is shaped using simple short rows. The result is something to jazz up a plain outfit or wrap your neck on a chilly day.
A perfect use for the single skein of loveliness you’ve been wanting to use.
