Inspired by the need to receive a sincere and gentle hug from time to time, Soulmate is designed to give you all the size, softness and lightness a shawl can offer, so you can enjoy a little heartfelt love everytime you wrap yourself in it.

Soulmate is an airy crescent shaped shawl that starts with a small garter tab cast on and spreads its wings quickly through increases of 6 stiches per two rows. Alternated stockinette, reverse stockinette and eyelet lace sections make this shawl a de-stressing and relaxing knit while the two colors and a beautiful lace edging keep things interesting.

A schematic drawing of the shawl is provided, accompanied by shortened instructions, that still contain all the information you need to successfully knit your project.
Testknitters LOVED the schematics!
