Winged Shawl with Jackie-
This is a wonderful pattern- surprisingly simple yet impressive as can be. Make yours out of any fingering, DK or even worsted weight yarn- striping ones seem to look the best. Make it as long as you wish. With just 2 balls of Noro Silk Garden Sock, Jackie knit hers as shown here. She added a button tab to allow her to wear it as a capelet.
For the Shawl, bring size 8-- 24" circulars, but remember- you may need to change to another size needle, depending on your yarn choice.
