Connecting with our loved ones over the phone and through video calls just isn’t the same as giving them a hug in person.

I came up with Together Apart as a lovely way to reach out to your BFF, because even if you can’t be together, you can knit a “hug” and send it to them to show how much you care.

Together Apart is an asymmetrical triangle shawl knit with a garter stitch body and interspaced with sections of lace. One shawl takes two skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light for the main color and a few grams of one of a different color for the contrast stripes.

Grab four skeins, knit two shawls in inverted colorways and send one to your friend! The intertwined colors are a reminder that even when we’re apart, we’re still a part of each other’s lives.

Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light
• 2 skeins in main color (Copper Pink Solid in bright version, Phantasm in dark version) 205 g / 783 yds [716 m] used for sample
• 1 skein in contrasting color (vice versa) 4 g / 16 yds [15 m] used for sample
Note: With 2 skeins in each colorway, you can knit two shawls in inverted colorways.

Pattern has been tech-edited and test knitted.
