A custom collaboration with A Verb for Keeping warm for their Proverbial Shawl Club, Sonora was previously available only for subscription members.

Worthy of Note
This shawl is knit back and forth from the neck out. To begin, a long garter tab is worked, and then stitches are picked up to work the body. The shawl is worked in sections: the right and left sides have a garter edge and triangular side with mini cable motifs, and the center panel has cable panels and a lace center.

When slipping stitches along the shawl edge, slip all stitches purlwise with yarn in front.

When working from charts, read all right side (RS) rows from right to left and all left side (LS) rows from left to right.
