CAST ON: Lightweight Hipster by Jodi Locatelli

Joji Locatelli’s popular Hipster Shawl has been reimagined in a lightweight version. This one-skein wonder – yes, it only takes one skein! – calls for 400 yards of fingering weight yarn and size US 7 needles. Work this crescent-shaped shawl from the top-down, dropping stitches as you work to create a cool, lacey shawl that wraps and drapes with ease.
