One of my favorite activities is knitting in a cozy cafe drinking coffee, eating pastries, and simply enjoying the day with beautiful yarns and colors. I created this simple sideways shawl that grows from a small ribbed beginning into a large textured asymmetrical shape with ribbing, garter stitch, and slipped stitches. La Bien Aimée dyed three stunning speckled colorways in their crisp and round Merino Sport base for this faded shawl. Enjoy knitting this relaxing design!
