Wrap yourself in a sprinkling of kisses; soft and round like the first droplets that fall from grey thunder clouds hung heavy with rain.

Thunder Cloud Kisses is a gorgeously lacy shawl without all the fuss. She’s perfect for draping open over your shoulders or worn bandana style. She’ll turn heads dressed up for a party and also looks fabulous worn over a T-shirt and jeans for a casual lunch with friends.

Worked from side-to-side in fingering yarn, Thunder Cloud Kisses is a deliciously fun knit full of “kisses” and plenty of Stockinette Stitch to keep you entertained and relaxed.

The graceful droplet-lace border is simple to master and the pattern includes a link to a video tutorial demonstrating some special stitches step-by-step: https://www.trulymyrtle.com/cloudkissestutorials

Thunder Cloud Kisses is perfectly suited to intermediate and experienced knitters.
