Easy, cozy, warm. What more could you want in a shawl? I designed this on a whim when I was at a knitting retreat in the mountains of Vermont and bought some hand-spun yarn at a nearby wool co-op. I wanted to cast on immediately and make something I could remember without finding a fancy stitch pattern or following a chart. I only had one skein of the main yarn, so I made a small neck wrap and used a contrasting yarn to add an i-cord bind off. I loved the results so much, I decided to make a full-size version out of a cashmere-blend yarn. And now always anticipate cold, rainy days so I can cozy up in my favorite chair with a cup of cocoa and a good book.
