Worked from the top down in three colors of fingering weight yarn, the About Town Shawl showcases a striking mix of knit-purl textures, garter stitch, and lace. Make it your own with colors that suit your style — subtle neutrals, or bright colors that pop — it’s your choice!

This light, airy shawl was designed as a companion piece for the About Town Mitts. The mitts and shawl may be purchased together in an ebook set.
