I’ve spent a lot of time down by the lake this summer, often late at night. What started off as a smaller style shawl to warm my own back, quickly became a much larger piece after realizing there was someone I wanted to share these late night shorelines with. Inspired by Gansey sweaters, this shawl uses only simple Knits and Purls, with occasional slipped stitches, to form chunky textures.

The Small size will cover your back. The Large size can become a warm layer to share with a loved one, or you can wrap yourself up in it when you’re alone… Add buttons and loops to the Large, and it turns into a very versatile poncho.

Please note, on 10/03/2015, errata was incorporated into the actual pattern. If something doesn’t make sense and you had downloaded it prior, please grab the newer version! The gauge is not a typo, this shawl is knit very loosely!
