Pattern:  The Imposter’s Shawl

I love how the stitch pattern creates a basket weave appearance, and the edging is ingenious . . . this type of pattern, knit double-stranded in 100% cashmere yarn, is about as luxurious a shawl as you can get!  The pattern was perfect because it was interesting enough to keep me going, but simple enough to work on in front of the television in the evenings.  I like the size, too – not so big that it turns into a huge wrap around your neck, and it’s so warm, it doesn’t need to be any bigger!
