Due to the big needle size, ‘Aspen Snow’ is a quick knit and the woolen yarn will keep you warm all winter long.

’Aspen Snow’ is worked flat from the top down, starting with a garter tab. Stitches are increased along the edges and the center to create a shallow triangular shawl.

The pattern is fully written out and charted with stitch counts throughout the entire shawl.
