Featuring an elongated pattern stitch, this easy lace shawl is a fun accessory for those cooler spring days that surely lie just ahead.  Adapted from a pattern by the Berroco Design Team, I’ve used our 100% alpaca Paca Paints Yarn and this shawl turned out lovely!  The color I chose is called Spiked Punch.
