Right now we all need a little escape and happier times, so I created the Happy times shawl for us all. It’s a big semi crescent shape with lots of changes build in from yarn weights, textures and colors. There are also changing stitch patterns to keep you happily occupied, such as stranded knitting and a lovely textured border. It finishes with an I-cord bind off done in two colors.

The blocked measurements are: Total wing span 91”, middle height 18“.

The pattern is written, has a schematic, two charts and a video link. Test knitted and tech edited.
