Originally inspired by the vibrant purple and green hues of my favorite flower, the double French lilac, this two-color shawl will work perfectly with your favorite color combination, too! Or try Syringa in a single color for a subtly elegant, textured statement.

This triangular shawl is worked in one piece from the top down and features columns of slipped stitches and alternating stripes of stockinette and garter stitch. Fingering weight yarn is worked on a larger needle to enhance the drape of the shawl. The sample pictured above is the Small size.
