We could all use something to soothe us these days. Driftlines is a perfectly relaxing – but definitely not boring – knit that features a fun design. The hybrid construction of Driftlines makes it a unique pattern, combining both a shawl and a cowl in one. When worn, it looks like a triangular shawl from the front and a cowl from the back. It’s so simple to wear - just slip it on with no fuss of tucking in your shawl ends or bulk in the back neck. Driftlines makes for a quick project that is both interesting and meditative, creating a great distraction when you just want to unwind. Grab your favorite worsted weight wool, then settle in to knit one (or a few) up. So go on…de-stress and lose yourself in those lovely textured stitches.
