Show & Tell - Effra Shawl
This gorgeous shawl was knitted by Janette using Fyberspates Gleem Lace. It's so delicate with an all over lace pattern and light lilac colour (shade 724 - Heavenly).
I believe Janette only used one hank of Gleem Lace but if you're worried about running out and your tension does not match the pattern then you may want to get two hanks.
It's a versatile shape. Looking light and delicate when worn opened out but more cosy and substantial when bundled up.
The subtle shades of Gleem allows the lace patterning to shine.
