The Mizu shawlette is a simple one-skein wonder project, but not without sophistication and grace. The body of the shawlette is worked up in sections of stockinette, divided by a fine line of slip stitches, for textural and visual interest. And to finish the design, a delicate and airy lace pattern, resembling water drops dripping off of leaves after a summer storm.
