Swell is a fun, quick, quirky shawl that uses some simple texture stitches, a fun little texture/eyelet combo stitch, and a smidge of short rows at the end to make a lovely, drapey, perfect-for-the-shoulders combo for those days when you just need a little something to keep you warm!

Size: 70 inches / 178 cm along the top edge X 19 inches/ 48 cm at the widest part of the shawl. Shawl size may vary, depending on individual knitter’s gauge, yarns used, and blocking preferences.
