This lace shawl, worked as a Pi shawl from the center out, has the option of having sleeves or no sleeves. The body is worked in one color and the edging is worked in a contrasting color. As the edging is worked, the body stitches are bound off. To finish you will have only a few stitches to graft together as you desire. This is the first in a series of four, one for each season. Welcome to Spring!
