If you purchase 5 of my self-published designs at the same time (they need to be in the same cart), you will get the least expensive for free!

This simple but stylish shawl is easy to knit and fun to wear. The whole body is worked in garter stitch with colorful stripes which give a nice touch and make the knitting interesting.
