This deep and well-proportioned triangle shawl works outward from a twisted-stitch variation of a traditional garter tab. Textured arrows of reverse stockinette flow down both sides into a unique four-stitch textured border that is also reflected around the center spine. Originally written for use with a double strand of Loft or a single strand of Shelter, Kindling is a light and rustic layer to float over a winter coat. Worked in worsted-spun Arbor, Kindling’s comforting weight allows it to serve as a sweater replacement if you wish to brave the chill during an early morning walk or evening out.
