Using the simplicity of garter stitch to make the most of the gorgeous texture of handspun, this five-color heart-shaped shawl is remarkably easy to wear.

Its angled shape keeps it in place with a minimum of fuss, and it’s just the right size to be cozy without being overly bulky. It’s simple to knit, and works up fast on size 8 / 5.0 mm needles.

Once you’re past the first few rows, this shawl is easy to knit without the pattern – perfect for social knitting or travel.

Inclusive kits with all the handspun yarn you’ll need to complete the project are available on the linked website.
