Cadbury Ruffle Shawl

While this shawl design is not particularly original it is my own design. Gifted with some Colinette Tao and Parisienne from my Mum, I decided to make a small Shawlette. The colour reminded me of the wrapping of Cadbury's dairy milk, hence the name.

Knowing that the Tao had less yardage directed me towards a stripey shawl. Alternating two rows of each yarn until Tao ran out. Around the outside edge a ruffled edge added a simple decorative finish. Made with silk and kidsilk yarns the shawl has a luxurious feel and will keep my shoulders warm in the winter months. It is also reversible should I want to wear it with a reverse stocking stitch on display.
