CAST ON: Berry Scone Shawl by Lauren Rad

Lauren Rad of A Bee in the Bonnet has released Berry Scone Shawl, a delicate shawl that combines eyelets, bobbles, and seed stitch. Worked with a fingering weight yarn, this shawl is light weight yet big enough to be super cozy. Best of all, it can be worn for any occasion – toss it on with jeans or over a dress.
