Never too Old to Sparkle
A garter crescent with some elongated stitches gives you a good size even from one skein of yarn, and the stockinette ruffle adds a bit of playfulness to it.
Now you might wonder where the name comes from: When I got this yarn, I knew it was the perfect colours for my mother, who turned 75 this summer - so I knit this shawl for her, and she is my model too. Because you are never too old to sparkle, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
