Comber Rd. is such a great winter staple for your wardrobe. You will love the simplicity of this triangular shawl! It starts out with a plain garter stitch body and slowly changes to stockinette near the bottom and is finished off with a clean border of ribbing. The use of Bulky yarn makes this shawl oh so cozy. The perfect everyday knit for outdoor adventures! BUT, what makes this pattern really great is that you can actually use any weight of yarn. There are instructions on how to easily adapt the pattern to suit your own personality so you can make something truly unique to you.
