Through Thick & Thin Friendship Shawl
This pattern can be purchased on the Knit Picks website, too. This Shawl was designed to celebrate friendship through thick & thin. I have made it using lace weight and finger/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.
