Gorgeous lace and delightful texture come together in this rhythmic lace shawl. Diamonds & Dashes gets its name from the marriage of a pretty diamond-lace motif with the fabulous zips of color featured in soft, smooth Zesty Sock. Envelop yourself completely in the larger size or keep it simpler with the smaller size. Either way, you’re going to love wrapping this gorgeous shawl around your neck and shoulders anytime the air is brisk!
