If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Perfect for warding off chills on those rainy nights and brisk days, Abuelito is inspired by the sort of scarf you might find in your granddad’s wardrobe.

It’s a triangle shawl, knit from the top down and spiced up with a subtle pattern in masculine colors.

A rustic lace border finishes the look.

Arranmore Light from The Fibre Company, a DK blend of merino, cashmere and silk, is thick and cozy.
