Named for the phrase “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” This shawl is a standard top down triangular shawl with a few lovely details. The spine of the shawl is a lovely but simple to work lace and the garter stitch edge is worked in a slightly darker color for a lovely soft color shift. Worked in a worsted weight yarn, this is the shawl that will keep you warm before winter has shifted to spring, on cold and windy days that find a tea cup and needles in your hands. As with all the shawls in the Simple Shawls Ebook, work it in any yarn weight at any gauge (it is adjustable) but know that this will effect your required yardage.
