Marshmallow Hot Chocolate is an aran weight, snuggly shawl with a simple lacework design. The design, came from those cold chilly winter evenings. The kind that makes you hurry home faster. With cheeks pink from the cold nothing feels nicer than coming indoors to the bright orange flames of the fire leaping in the hearth growing higher and stronger, spreading their warmth.

Then, just as the heat from the fire has spread like a blanket around you to warm you up, you curl your legs up on the sofa, with yarn and needles strewn gently across your knee, hands hugging a mug of hot smooth liquid brown chocolate with gooey soft marshmallows floating on the top.

And as the cool wind blows outside you snuggle down deeper into the sofa and grip your hot chocolate a little tighter.
