Volare is the Latin and Italian word for the verb to fly; adding an acute accent on the final e (volaré), it is also the Spanish word for I will fly.

It’s always freezing at my office. I always have to wear a shawl. Said shawl usually has to be conservative, particularly when we are expecting clients. When I saw this Kauni colorway, I KNEW it would be perfect for this type of shawl. This is a quick and easy design you can knit until whenever you feel like stopping, run out of yarn, or just feel the shawl is the perfect size.

Yarn: Kauni Effektgarn 8/2; yardage varies on skeins of this yarn. The model shown used 446 yds of the ET colorway, purchased from Little Knits.

Skills needed: understanding charts and symbols.

Notions: stitch markers, yarn needle.
