March 2014 update **

This beautiful shawl just never got as popular as I think it should be - so I’ve decided to make it free for a bit! If you like my free patterns, please consider buying some of my not-so-free ones!


I hope you like this geometrically beautiful thing!

This shawl is fun and easy to knit. It’s charted and the charts are very non-threatening. Easy to memorize and easily repeated to make the shawl any size you’re interested in.

Hope you like it!
