Mashrabiya Lace Shawl and Vest
Created by: The Sexy Knitten
This lacy shawl brings to mind the intricate, decorative lattice windows of Asia.
Worked from the bottom up in one wide piece, it knits up quickly on large needles and yields a shocking amount of delicate fabric from only 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn.
The addition of the optional armholes opens up a wide variety of styling options; wear it open, pinned or tied shut, ends thrown over your shoulders, or even as a wrap blouse!
