The design process for this shawl happened very organically. Once I received the beautiful skein of AVFKW’s “Even Tinier Annapurna,” I knew I wanted to create a relaxing knit that resulted in a very easy to wear shawl. Garter stitch, polka dot eyelets and my favorite lace border combined to make this one-skein wonder one of my absolutely favorite new knits. I hope you have as much fun knitting it is I have! Thank you so much, A Verb for Keeping Warm, for letting me be a part of this year’s Proverbial Shawl Club!!
