Whether dreaming of highland misty crags or out for an autumn stroll, wrap up in this generous shawl. Simple and rustic - the best recipe for lazy fireside knitting. Worked bottom up in garter stitch with colour blocking and an optional antler button.

A Note On Size
There have been some concerns that there is a big size difference between what the pattern states and what comes off the needles. Getting the correct gauge is very important towards proper sizing. It’s also good to note that the finished shawl must be blocked (and aggressively) to achieve the size given.
