Kindled pays homage to those special friendships; the friends that you’ve had forever. You may not speak or even see each other often, but when you do that friendship picks up where it left off; it’s immediately kindled.

And you’ll feel the same way about this shawl. Pick it up, put it down, pick it up again and you’ll delight in the effortless familiarity. The easy lace stitch pattern and simple garter stripes in a familiar shaping make for a knit that keeps your interest piqued without crushing your confidence. It’s a mindful knit. It’s a knit for those busy times. It’s a comfort knit.

Kindled is an asymmetrical triangular-shaped shawl worked in garter, stripes and simple lace; perfect for using up mini skeins and left over odds and ends.
