Short Description: Be still my heart. Lovella has all the suggestions of a lacy valentine. With contrasting colours in garter row stripes and a delightfully simple section of eyelet, it forms a substantial shawl that curves like an embrace around the shoulders. This charming design in DK weight yarn is quick to knit and begs to be cast on more than once. Knit one for yourself in your favorite colours, then make another for a loved one, tie it up with a ribbon, and send it as a hug.
