Worked on the bias in Tunisian stitches, this shawl has five peaks that let the shawl hug the shoulders. A sumptuous lightweight alpaca, silk, and cashmere blend is worked on a large hook to create an airy, woven-like fabric. A breeze for Tunisian regulars, this shawl is well within range for beginners. Knitters will recognize the eyelet-border technique as a variation of the familiar garter-stitch washcloth.
