A Girl's Best Friend is a triangular shawl worked flat from the top down. The textured body followed by two contrast colored pattern stripes, accented by small garter stitch stripes in a third color and the sportive 3x1 rib at the edge make this a fun and entertaining knit, a versatile but special companion for everyday. Pompoms are added at the edge to make it even more special and personal, but tassels or even fringes may be a fantastic option too.
