“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Alice, Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 1 Looking-Glass House, Lewis Carroll.

In the winter, when the snow drifts against the fences, the nights are dark and the days are short, I wish I could, like Alice, step through the looking glass and find a warm and sunny world. But, as I can’t, it is the perfect time to settle down with a good book, a warm drink and a shawl to snuggle in.

This shawl starts from a 3 stitch garter tab and grows with soft cables and eyelets to a tiny lace border. Knit in a silk cashmere blend, if knitting were food, this would be the comfort food of the knitter’s diet.

You can make a larger or smaller shawl by adding or omitting pattern repeats. Number of repeats worked and knitters gauge will impact yarn use.
