The pattern for this shawl was created for the MIDI Yarnclub for Chefwol.nl with coffee as it’s main theme. The shawl is featured in a handdyed yarn dyed in a coffee colorway mixed with a brown commercial yarn. The lace patterns refer to cinnamon.

This pattern is available in DUTCH and US English.

This shawl combines a handdyed yarn with a (semi-)solid commercial yarn and is an easy to (tv-) knit garter shawl, with some lace parts to keep things interesting.
