Using the simplicity of garter stitch to make the most of the gorgeous texture of handspun, this five-color heart-shaped shawl is remarkably easy to wear.
Its angled shape keeps it in place with a minimum of fuss, and it’s just the right size to be cozy without being overly bulky. It’s simple to knit, and works up fast on size 8 / 5.0 mm needles.
Once you’re past the first few rows, this shawl is easy to knit without the pattern – perfect for social knitting or travel.
Kits include five 75 yard skeins of hand-spun yarn, a copy of the pattern, a size 8 / 5.0 mm bamboo circular needle, stitch markers, yarn needle, and handy gauge card.
Please note that skeins are shown as they come off the bobbin and will be measured and wound into 75 y skeins before shipping.
