I love the edging on this little shawlette. A quick, easy knit, and I love the way it turned out. It's a gift for my daughter-in-law who is expecting a baby in December. I thought it would make a nice cover-up for breastfeeding. I like that the names of the pattern and the colorway are the same!

I don't know if it'd be big enough for a cover up for nursing, but it's gorgeous!!

I used to nurse (4 kids, all now adults) under a shawl - turn it around backwards, or throw it over just one shoulder. Nice work, Slim! Royal blue is totally your color - makes your eyes POP!

Another beauty! You need to make one for yourself in that color - it's perfect on you!

What MoniDew said, over one shoulder.

VERY pretty!!! It sure beats the heck out of the long gauze diapers I used.

That's just beautiful!

Oh how nice, Slim! Well chosen, well done! A great gift for a new mother!

That is gorgeous and yes having it over one should will be great for breastfeeding. Like another writer stated, I only had good old fashioned cloth dipers to throw over my shoulder many moons ago when I nursed. Might just have to do something like this for my daughter expecting in September.
