Isabell Kraemer - A Girl's Best Friend
a girl’s best friend is a triangular shawl worked flat from the top down. The textured body followed by 2 contrast colored pattern stripes, accented by small garter stitch stripes in a third color and the sportive 3x1 Rib at the edge make this a fun and entertaining knit… a versatile, but special companion for everyday. Pompoms are added at the edge to make it even more special and personal. But tassels or even fringes may be a fantastic option too.
