Most of us are tired of the election drama, whichever side of the fence you reside. So, what better way for a knitter to console her/himself than to cast on a new project? It’s a positive thing for mental health; you might even say that the doctor recommended it. You can also use any fingering weight/sock yarn, scrap yarn, Donald Trump’s hair, whatever you like. As a final bonus if things get really bad, you can bury your head in your new cashmere shawl and have a little meltdown when needed over the next four years.

Difficulty
Designed to be simple with garter, stockinette, slipped stitches and a picot bind off. That’s all! Think of it as election therapy - no complicated lace stitches - just some nice, soothing knitting to calm you down and prevent you from punching anyone.

Final measurements
79” along neck edge by 16” at deepest part

Note This was designed for the Menage a Trois bundles that are carried by many yarn stores. The sample is made in Silver Fox, Hennessy, and Smoke. You may also knit this with fingering or sport weight yarn on a US 6/4mm. You will need 300 yards of each color in a fingering weight to be safe. It’s also simple to make larger if you have extra yarn.
