Knit the elegant Salvus Shawl featuring Civility Sport from Elemental Affects ...
The "Salvus Shawl" is a wonderful, elegant accessory that can be knit in either the Elemental Affects Civility Sport or the Civility Sport HiTwist yarns. Both yarns feature a generous supply of silk to add a lux soft feel ... have the same color palette, gauge and yardage on the skein. However, the Civility Sport HiTwist creates a fabric with a bit more "bounce", while the regular twist yarn is a little drapier and has an even softer feel. Oh, did I mention they are completely made in the USA?

A lace panel graces the back of this beautiful shawl. Simple stockinette side and front panels are shaped to create a perfectly fitting accessory. A touch of drape in the fabric allows it sit smoothly and gently around you. Wear it pinned in the front for a dressier look or wrap it cozily around your neck for a casual layer of warmth!
