Eaten on their own, with sugar or cream, or heaped on top of a scone or meringue, strawberries are an essential part of a British summer. This little shawl is perfect for those summer days when you need a little extra warmth or cover. Knitted from side to side in garter stitch, with the garter lace edging worked at the same time, the size and shape of the shawl can be easily customised. The pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
