•A great pattern to try out lace if you’re new to it! Your confidence will soar!

•A simple repeating pattern of Stockinette Stitch, making it the perfect travel project to take with you when you are on the go.

•A fun and interesting shape that grows as you knit. You can stop whenever you like. You don’t even have to work the lace section if you don’t want to. Up to you!

•Change colors if and when and how you like or work in a solid. Make this shawl your OWN! It’s awaiting your creativity!

The asymmetric triangle shape is one of my absolute favorite shapes to make as a shawl. It is very fun and versatile to wear as well. I really enjoy adding stripes to keep my attention as I knit.

I chose the name Cool Comfort, to reflect the comfortable feeling of having a shawl wrapped around you during the cooler months. I really enjoy sitting on my porch swing snuggled up with a shawl, reading a book, and drinking tea.
