Big comfy shawl to keep you warm throughout the year.
The shawl is worked from top down, beginning with Garter tab cast-on. The short row stripes create an endless playground for beautiful color combinations.

Please note that this shawl is a tad smaller and has a more curved shape than the one in tester’s projects because I improved the construction and had to make small changes.
