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

Meet Pinkie Lee. It’s a sweet and saucy little asymmetric piece of shawltastic goodness, providing you, the knitter, with the excuse to choose two colors of fabulous yarn and work mesh and ribbing and garter all the live-long day. With a fun and kicky sideways border, you will not have one minute of knitterly boredom.
