This pattern includes a second PDF version that is formatted for knitters with low vision. It has black text, size 22 or larger text in a sans serif font, no italics, no columns, and fully-written directions. The chart is still included but is not needed to work the pattern. Many thanks to Gemma Thompson (gemmabelle here on Rav) for her guidance in formatting patterns in a more accessible way.

You might remember the Berry Scone Shawl, which I released earlier this year. It’s been one of my most popular patterns ever. I love the stitch pattern, but I wanted to do something that used only one skein of yarn so knitters could use a treasured single skein they had been saving for something special or stash dive and make something pretty during times when their budgets might be tight.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about how knitting has been such a helpful coping tool while so many of us have been spending more time at home than usual during an extremely stressful period. The summer months are picking up here in the Northern Hemisphere, and we’re all struggling with the urge to go outside and play, but I’m still doing my best to stay home as much as I can. I hope having this pattern handy will help you do so, too.
