The Pixie Dreams Shawl is light, airy, and perfectly delicate. The pattern has a consistent rhythm that makes it a joy to work up, but changes enough to keep things interesting. An eight-row repeat means the shawl is easily adjustable and can be worked to any size, and the pattern only uses sc, dc, and ch, making it accessible to an adventurous beginner. The shawl is designed to work with any colorway. The openness and lace prevent pooling and make the Pixie Dreams Shawl an excellent choice for variegated or busy speckled yarns, while the delicacy and details are perfect for helping a classic solid or tonal shine. The two versions pictured are exactly identical except for the beginning, end, and center of the edging rows; one is slightly lacier and one is more solid. The pattern includes notes for both versions of the edging.
