Light as a cloud in cashmere yarn this shawl lives up to its namesake. With mostly stockinette stitch body and an easy garter and lace edging, it’s perfect for relaxed knitting while watching a favorite show. I picked blue and white colors to remind me of a summer sky, but this two-color shawl would look equally pretty in any of your favorite colors.
