With apologies to Elton John:

And you can tell everybody this is your shawl.
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I knit up in yarn
How wonderful life is that you’re in the world.*

What’s a knitter to do when a dear friend needs a hug but lives too far away to just pop over? Send flowers? Send yarn? No, send a shawl – a portable hug.

This Is Your Shawl is a crescent shawl featuring a prominent tulip-inspired lace panel in the center flanked by smaller panels of stockinette. It can be warm and cushy when knit in a DK weight yarn or light and airy in sport weight. Either way, you can send flowers, yarn, and a hug to a friend in need.

The pattern includes both written and charted directions, as well as stitch counts for each section.
