A shawl for spring

Today’s shawl pic is courtesy of the wonderful Liz aka Greensideknits on Ravelry, with the pretty ‘A Leafy Hug Shawl’ by Vicki Mikulak. With a simple lace leaf pattern, it is a great way to showcase a pretty semi solid yarn.

In terms of base yarn, a silk blend would really highlight the leaf pattern by adding a touch of shimmer and glamour. For a piece with more drape, consider an alpaca based yarn.

What would you knit yours in?
