Althea is the perfect summer shawl. I love the touch of Blue Faced Leicester, it feels soft and smooth against your skin. You can easily wear it over a camisole or summer dress and, because of the shape of the shawl, it will stay on your shoulders. You can easily make the shawl to your desired size by adding repeats of the open lace pattern which is very easy to memorize. Althea is perfect for working on at your knitting group.
