The deep, dark red cherries speak of warm days. A baker has to be speedy in picking them, as the birds love the berries, too. As delightful as its baked counterpart, the Cherry Cake shawl is traditional and full of summer fun. It’s both easy to knit and wear.

Cherry Cake has an elongated triangle shape. The eyelet patterns in this one-skein shawl maximize the yardage and bring lightness to the fabric. The two halves of the shawl aren’t exact mirror images, bringing a bit of whimsy to the design.

Cherry Cake is part of the Garden Delights collection. The other shawls are Currant Jam and Rhubarb Pie.
