Verandah is a warm and comforting hug of a shawl. Relaxing garter stitch, along with slipped stitch colourwork, work together to create visual interest, texture, and a soft fabric that drapes well. The shawl is a top-down triangular shape. Yarn over increases are used at the top edges and the centre spine to increase the size of the shawl.

Verandah was designed using White Gum Wool Ethical Superfine Merino 4 ply - a velvety-soft Australian fingering yarn from Tasmania. Visit the White Gum Wool website: HERE

Available in two sizes - just choose two pretty colours and cast on!
