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!

Traditional hap shawl with a little bit of colorplay and fringe. Or not. You decide :-)
One thing is sure - it’s sooooooo cozy!

The shawl begins at the center with a Garter stitch triangle which features simple patterning for visual effect. Once you knit the yarnovers along the edges, you will increase sts and begin Faux Flame part. After completing the simple garter border, you may attach a row of tassels in CC to create a lovely looking fringe.
