CAST ON: Black Tartan by Espace Tricot

This lightweight shawl is a large square with a modern tartan design. Use light fingering weight yarn to work this piece flat with knits and purls. Keep the 54″ shawl open and use as a throw or fold in half to create a triangle shape that drapes over your shoulders.
