Fun fact about me: I could never pass up a good beer, especially if I can knit at the same time. Whether it’s a quiet Saturday night or a happy hour after a busy day, I like to grab a pint, sit, and work on my knitting. I bound off this project as I was finishing an evening drink with friends, so the name HAPPY HOUR stuck. Made with three skeins of Malabrigo Rios, this worsted weight shawl is worked sideways and combines garter stitch and slipped stitches, making it a quick and comfortable project that works especially well with chilly days. Just be sure to drink (and knit) responsibly!
