I love this lace shawl pattern, its beautiful and I can imagine some really chunky tassels looking amazing in place of those pom poms.
There is a great range in this set of patterns, it feels like the perfect choice for knitting all those stocking fillers! This pattern is sized for up to 12 year olds which means that if you like the pattern - it will likely be big enough for an adult (or you just keep going on the repeats until it's the size you want!)
Knitted in King Cole Big Value Tonal Chunky means it has gorgeous variegated colours in a 100% acrylic yarn. You could also try King Cole Chunky Tweed which has jewel tone colourways with a enjoyable fleck!
