Shawls are one of my favorite things to knit for other people.
There is always an occasion to use one which is why I think they make a perfect keepsake for someone you care for. What I really adore are shawls that invite you to wrap yourself up in them whether you are sitting on the front porch reading or snuggling up on the couch in the middle of winter. Himalaya is an oversized triangular shawl meant for that kind of snuggling. The entrelac design is the perfect canvas for showcasing the dramatic colors of Shokay while the warmth and softness of the yarn makes it a perfect wrap and an heirloom quality addition to anyone’s collection.
DIFFICULTY: appropriate for a beginning-intermediate knitter. The pattern requires a basic knowledge of picking up stitches, decreasing, binding off, and some basic crochet.
oversized shawl is 95 inches wide at top after edging, but it can also be made to a more traditional fingertip length.
Let your imagination run wild…
