Summer of Love is a simple to knit and easy to wear shawl. The instructions have been written so that you can tailor them to suit: there’s a lace section and a garter stitch section, and they can be repeated and combined in any order. You can make it as-is or make it bigger, smaller, rearranging the lace sections, add colors…

Have fun designing your own! It is reversible, too!
