Where Maine’s rocky shore meets the cold Atlantic Ocean is the land of puffins. Here Be Puffins is a crescent-shaped shawl that starts with a large section of stockinette stitch and gradually gives way to an undulating fan lace pattern. Pick a semi-solid and a coordinating variegated for a subtle look or two different solids for a stronger contrast.
