Soft Shoulder Shawl

Soft Shoulder Shawl



With a slight shimmer of silver peeking through the brushed exterior of the yarn, Amy Gunderson's Soft Shoulder Shawl in Roma is not only great to look at, it's also so much fun to stitch. This shawl is worked side to side with the edging knitted at the same time as the body of the piece.
