One day I cast on for the shawl shortly after breakfast to be ready to knit it during the many hours I find myself with kids at the playground. It was meant to be simple and fun, with a maximum of two sections that could be easily memorized – a perfect playground shawl.

This design has been created to show off the beauty of Caterpillargreen Yarns. Although I strongly recommend enjoying “the Caterpillargreen experience”, you can use substitutes. You can grab any yarn you wish – any color, any weight – and just play with the instructions to create your own beautiful Playground Shawl. Your imagination is the only limit here!
