Schaefer Is Shagilicious
This is a small scale shawl knit out of Schaefer Hand Dyed Heather Yarn. This yarn is so soft and has such amazing body. There is a touch of nylon in it so it has flexibility. It is also machine washable.
The photo does not do it justice. The pattern is free on Ravelry, or you can Google the Lacy Baktus Knit Pattern.
The colorway is a cool collection of the red spectrum. The blue undertones are evident. You cast on at one of the ends and increase to the middle- then you decrease in a mirror image to the other end.
It is versatile as a scarf, head wrap, shawl, or even a hip wrap- if you have saucy little hips you want to highlight!
