With this shawl you can give your friends and loved ones the warmth and comfort of home, and your embrace. When they are away from you and they put it on, it is as if they have found a hidden way home, visible only for themselves—for the rest of the world, it is just a beautiful accessory. If you make it for yourself, you will feel as warm and comfortable as you are at home, even if you are far away.

The unusual shape is achieved by first knitting the angled part on the bias, then picking up stitches along the straight short edge and continuing in the same two-colour pattern of textured stripes. The contrasting colour eyelet rows accentuate the shaping and add more visual interest.

Knit in DK weight yarn, Hidden Way Home works up quickly despite its size.
