A night of knitting, chatting and sipping requires a simple project. Bonus that this shawl is also perfect to wear with jeans and a tee to knit night! It begins with just a few stitches and grows into a boomerang shape. I used one color but it would be lovely in scraps or two colors striped as well. It’s easily customizable to the yardage on hand. It’s so much fun to knit and I just know you are going to love it!
