I love to knit shawls but I just can’t talk myself into wearing one and spending all day fussing with it. So I am mostly resigned to shawls being the wardrobe of more elegant women. Mostly, but not entirely.

This shawl combines a simple stitch pattern with a shape that doesn’t much care about specific stitch count, to give you a rhythmic, stress-free knitting experience. The asymmetrical design and a slightly far east feel result in a dramatic showcase for Freia’s gorgeous ombre yarn. And it is easily wearable with or without a shawl pin.
