Mean Girls

In Fingering weight yarn, Patterns, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available by Shannon

Inspired by the amazingly fabulous and wonderful early-2000s movie Mean Girls, this shawl is meant to be worn by the nice girls in your life. Or at least by the ones you like the most. The shape of this shawl is a bit different than you may be used to – the edging stitches used means that the edges are much stiffer than the top, which allows you to wear it in oodles of different ways, and means it drapes differently than other, similarly-shaped shawls.
