Ella is a medium sized, shawl with tassels. I used two strands of Indigo Moon Fingering Weight in Olive and 7mm needles. You may also use an aran weight yarn. The measurements for this pattern are approximate. You may end up with a larger or smaller shawl depending on your gauge, and choice of yarn and needles. Enjoy!
