I am lucky to have a mountain view from my kitchen window. Among those mountains, which are often covered in snow in the winter, are the Four Peaks. It really is the most fantastic kitchen view.

As you work through the stitches of this great big snuggly shawl, you are forming four rows of zig-zags, that turn a corner near the top of your shawl (when it’s beginning to really feel the squishy effects of all that gorgeous DK wool you’re working with) and they zig and zag along to the other corner. Four Peaks Shawl is a very simple construction, with a very intuitive, easy to remember repeat of knit and purl stitches.
