The shawl was designed to celebrate friendship through thick & thin. I have made it using lace weight and fingering/sock weight yarn for the thin yarn and used ribbon, thick handspun yarn and worsted weight, slow-variegating yarn for the thick yarn.

It is a lovely shawl that is light, airy and features that POP of thicker yarn for color, contrast or texture.
