Typhoon was created to satisfy a need – a need for a something else to knit with those amazing self-striping yarns that you just don’t want to make socks out of (OR for the knitter who just ISN’T that in to socks!)!

Using applied-short-rows and simple eyelet bands, Typhoon will storm off your needles and into your wardrobe in no time! Fun, fast, and addictive, this shawl will have you coming back for more!

Brace yourselves! The storm is coming!
