DESCRIPTION

Brew a cup and sit down for a quiet moment for yourself.

Lime Chamraj is named after a variety of lime-scented green tea. It is zesty, zingy, refreshing… yet soothing as its namesake.

Lime Chamraj is an asymmetrical crescent-shaped shawl made of garter stitch and simple eyelet lace. Alternating sections of eyelets and garter-stitch wedges shaped with short rows make both relaxing and stimulating knitting. The sweeping garter-stitch sections give an unusual shape to the shawl.

This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the eyelet pattern.
