This is a pretty straight-forward pattern, with dramatic results. You can knit it large, or you can knit it small - giving you a choice of a shawl or a scarf.

The best part: I designed it to be knit with sock yarn! Its a great way to take on the shape and techniques of a shawl without working with super-fine yarn. You can use sock yarn in just about any yardage - This is size small, knit with just 315 yards of Claudia Handpainted Fingering Yarn.

In designing this, I was inspired by the abbey where my aunt lives. They do good works. And make candy (to fund the good works). The most delicious, incredible, (sinful,) amazing candy known to life. But they need some help. Building a bigger kitchen - so they can make more delicious candy. You can read more about this here.

Anyway. 20% of the income made from this scarf will be donated to the building of this new kitchen.
