This pattern was inspired during a girls knit day at a garden party. The colors of the plants, the promise of spring and summer, and all the hugs from good friends spun together to form the Girlfriends Shawl. Knitted out of a cotton and wool summer blend, it is a great shawl to toss on during cool spring and summer evenings out with your girlfriends.

The pattern features instructions to knit this shawl in garter stitch with small details at the edges. The shawl is knit from side to side and features simple increasing and decreasing.
