Whose Shawl Do You Think This Is?

Light-as-air striped shawl is lovely enough for a movie star.

It is knit from bottom to top in a drop-stitch garter pattern with a gathered peplum and shawl collar. Make it with or without knit-in fringe.

Collar and waist shaping are worked after knitting by adding, on the inside, a few rows of slip stitch crochet - with more gathers at the collar for a nice ruffly front and fewer across the back for a comfortable fit.
