This asymmetrical shawl is inspired by the the Bandolier worn by our favorite furry sidekick! It is a super quick knit, with simple garter for the body, decorated with a band of color work to represent the bandolier. Then, to finish it off, fringe is attached along one of the edges. The fringe can be as short or as long as you like, or skip it all together!

Lorna’s Laces dyed an amazing color inspired by the Fuzzball himself, and kits for the shawl are available from Jimmy Beans Wool here!
