Pattern Notes

Shawlette is worked from the bottom up in a v-stitch and finished with a simple scallop edging along the top edge. Two delicate buttons are sewn on for adjustability and to help keep the shawlette in place. The shawl is styled by wearing the buttoned part on the shoulder and allowing it to drape across the other shoulder and down the front, but it can be worn many other ways too!
