Toffee is a sweet lightweight shawl available in 3 sizes, a fun and relaxing knit featuring stripes, lace, some cables and bobbles.

This top-down shawl was originally designed for handspun yarn but has been tested with a number of commercial yarns as well. Heavy lace weight to fingering weight yarns work best for this pattern. The pattern contains both charted and written-out instructions.
