Falling Leaves Shawl
                                                                               Falling Leaves Shawl

This shawl is made with my
KnitCrate" target="_blank">knit crate box. I receive one a month and have been doing so for a long
time. I love the yarn, it's a great way to get some high quality yarn at a good price.

This is a very easy shawl with simple stitches but looks great. If your a beginner you should be able to make this shawl. It has
beautiful stitch definition and I love the colour. This shawl can be done in any size yarn and will look lovely.
