Strawberry Confetti Cupcake
Strawberry Confetti Cupcake by LaVisch Designs. Strawberry Confetti Cupcake is a shawl designed to use that skein of speckled yarn you just couldn’t resist. In this design, it is paired with the lovely lace border in a contrasting solid color. Go wild with the color combinations! This shawl is knitted from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck edge with a garter tab. The patterning in the edging is based on a stitch pattern by Naomi Parkhurst and is worked on both right and wrong side rows. The instructions for the edging are both charted and written out.

This will of course change the amount of yarn needed.)
