This is a simple shawlette available in two different versions. The striping reminded me of the grooves formed by glaciers on Kelly’s Island in Ohio, a fantastic place that we used to go to as kids for family vacations. The most fun part about this pattern may just be picking the perfect two colors of a gorgeous hand-dyed sock yarn.
