Xenia (pronounced SEN-ya) is a generously sized, crescent shaped shawl that can be worn casually or for evenings out on the town in your favorite little black dress. With its ability to be worn in many ways, this shawl is sure to become a favorite in your personal knitwear wardrobe or to make a great gift for a scarf‑loving friend.
The shawl’s body features a simple horizontal ridge detail to lend visual interest to an otherwise stockinette fabric. A beautifully scalloped knit on border adds an elegant finishing touch. Instructions are also provided for making this shawl with two colors.
