Soft Payette Summer Shawl

This lovely little shawl uses the classic "Feather and Fan" pattern. It is built on a repeat of 18 stitches and so can be made wider by increasing the suggested number of stitches in groups of 18 but the noted number of stitches in this pattern makes a nice little shawl of 200g of Soft Payette.
It can also be made using any DK yarn but the "paillettes" add a touch of glimmer that is just delightful.
