Sugar is inspired by all the happiness in life: those moments when you‘re having butterflies, the sun is warming your heart or your inner child takes over.

Formed by asymmetric increases, this elongated triangle shawl starts with only two stiches and grows continuesly with every row.
Although knitted mainly in garter stich, Sugar brings just the right amount of spice through delicate, yet easy to remember, lace sections and slip stich rows.

Listen to your favorite song to let loose when choosing your three favorite colors to make this airy shawl! Maybe you want to add even more sugary sparkle by using beads?

Knit the perfect accessory for mild spring chills or beginning fall to remind you of the best and happiest times!
