Alivia is a unique, triangular shawl worked from the bottom point to the upper edge. The beautiful lace border remains the focal point of the shawl and with two center stitch options, it can be worn either formally or casually. Modifying the size of the shawl to use less or more yarn, or a different weight of yarn, is as easy as repeating the second chart fewer or more times.
