Some days, life demands a dash of regal vibes. In those moments, Queenie is your girl.
She has a confident air about her, enough complexity to keep things interesting, and a swing in her step that makes whatever comes your way feel completely doable.
A fabulously substantial shawl, Queenie is knitted from the top down in a scooped triangular shape. She incorporates oodles of texture, seductive lace, and a beautiful variety of soft yarns, and she looks fantastic cuddled around your neck or draped over your shoulders.
Queenie and fabulous shawl pins are a match made in heaven!
Including written instructions and charts, Queenie is perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
She’s also ideal for stash-busting and combining delicious skeins you’ve been saving for years.
