Those of us who knit spotted the blanket that Carrie Bradshaw was toting around New York City in the series’ recent spinoff, the large accessory comforting her before and after a medical procedure. What many didn’t realize about Carrie’s bold blanket was that it was actually an oversized, dramatically draped shawl. Big fringe, colorful yarn, and simple stockinette (with polished details) make this piece a must-have wearable accessory. And for those of us who don’t have nearly $3,000.00 to shell out on the original, here’s a perfect solution to knit one yourself!

The Carrie Blanket Shawl is a blanket and accessory all in one. It is knit on the bias for unbelievable comfort and drape and finished with fringe. It is sure to make heads turn (and keep legs warm!) Inspired by the iconic Carrie Bradshaw and her eccentric fashion choices, this simple knit piece is designed to highlight your most special super bulky yarns.

Have fun, be warm, and most importantly, stay fabulous!
