La Cumparsita is one of the most well known tangos and means “the little parade.” This delicate lacy shawl is composed of two complimentary lace patterns and a simple border with an easy picot bind off. Worked in superwash merino wool, it’s surprisingly durable and ready to be worn over a flirty ruffled dress or slung round your neck as a elegant scarf.
