Birch Sap shawl is inspired by the birch alley near the house I grew up in years ago. It was a sheltered, comfortable place in the middle of nowhere so birches always remind me of home and days long gone.

This shawl is worked using the same easy Top Down Sideways construction as my Pralines and Savoy Truffle shawls and it’s especially great for people who love knitting classic top down shawls but prefer something more modern to wear. It can be worn in several different ways and I especially love to wear it so that the large piece warms my shoulder and the long piece wraps around to keep the shawl secure.
