I named this shawl after the yarn I used … Vanna’s Glamour. I really loved working with this yarn. It’s so soft and sparkly.
One would think that the metallic thread would be scratchy, but it’s not. The shawl remains soft and comfortable to the touch. It’s lightweight enough for warm spring and summer evenings.
I’ve designed this pattern to be easy, so it’s a perfect project for beginners. I’ve also included links to clear and concise video and written tutorials. Although this pattern is easy, the end product looks very sleek and stylish.
I hope you enjoy making this shawl as much as I did.
Width of 14.5in (37cm) and length of 64 in (180cm)
