A huge, cosy shawl for Autumn days. Made with DK weight wool, this enormous shawl works up quickly in as many colour combinations as you can dream up. We suggest three here. This pattern is named after my favourite Ani Difranco album and my morning commute to the studio across a very wet farmyard.

Size:

Finished depth: 78cm/31in

Finished wingspan: 178cm/70in

Size is easily adjusted by working more or fewer repeats of the pattern. Altering the size alters the yarn required.
