While this pattern is being offered for free, please consider dropping an extra non-perishable food item into the food bank donation bin the next time you go grocery shopping. I’m sure Kate would approve.

Completely reversible, this everyday shawl elevates jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt to casual elegance while grocery shopping, with or without bodyguards in tow. Wrapped Danish-style, it transforms into a cozy rib warmer for stylishly walking the dog, or drapes beautifully about the shoulders when your castle feels a little chilly.

Nov 13/13 Please note that the yardage amount for Patons Classic Worsted has descreased significantly since I originally knit these designs. Additional skeins are necessary to complete the shawls as written.
