The Change Makers ebook is no longer available, but I’ll be donating 50% of proceeds from this pattern forever to the Southern Poverty Law Center .

This shawl is the epitome of knitterly self-care: all of the sections have a rhythm you can really get into; it’s a great excuse to pair two complementarily lovely colors; the yarn is domestic, soft, gorgeous, and bouncy; and the final object is a big hug of a shawl, perfect for snuggling under after a day spent resisting and persisting.

approximately 600 yards total sport-weight yarn. I used Sincere Sheep Cormo Sport in Aegean (blue, cA, 325 yds) and Vitamin C (orange, cB, 375 yds).

Finished measurements
75” across back, 18” deep at center, measured after blocking.
