“Rustic, modern, and wearable!”

When is a granny square not a square? When it’s half a square, or a triangle! Familiar yet current in Brooklyn Tweed Loft, a soft spun 2-ply fingering weight yarn that’s woolly and light, the ample 64”/163 cm wingspan of this shawl wraps you up warmly. Over a tee or tucked inside your jacket, just a pop of rustic fun!

Free pattern includes instructions for the ‘half-granny stitch’, as well as dimensions for a sized down kerchief version. Five skeins of Loft is enough for either size.
