Shawl In a Ball: Basic Shawl

Hi Everyone!

Some of you may remember the review I wrote on Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball. If you missed it you can read it here.

I used my Shawl in a Ball on holiday and made this very simple shawl:

My shawl, pictured on the bed of one of the more “interesting” hotel rooms.

I have had a few requests for the pattern, so I have written it up for you. There are instructions on how to add clusters if you wish to, as well as how to make a tassel. You do not have to put the clusters, it is entirely up to you.
