NATURALLY STRAIGHT FORWARD
: simple : therapeutic : nurturing : interesting knitting :

With a focus on natural yarns - β€œNaturally”, and leaning heavily on stripes - β€œStraight”, Andrea Mowry and Annie Rowden bring you a gentle collection of patterns designed to occupy your hands and soothe your mind, moving you β€œForward” through whichever place in life you find yourself.

This worsted weight, semi-circle shawl is a relaxing and quick knit. Knit up in a cushy, naturally dyed, woolen spun yarn with alternating stripes of stockinette stitch and sweetly simple lace. This shawl layers beautifully over tanks and sweet spring dresses, just as well as wrapping up warmly around your neck to keep the brisk autumn and winter winds at bay.
