The Winter Wander Shawl reflects the hush and sparkle of a landscape after the snow has fallen.

This crescent-shaped shawl is a deceptively quick and simple knit: the focus is on texture. Crisp garter stitch, an eye-catching eyelet panel, a magical dusting of beads and a pretty picot bind off makes this a wonderful last-minute addition to your holiday wardrobe, or a perfect gift for someone special.

This pattern is a wonderful excuse to pull out those special skeins of sock yarn in two different colours, or you can knit the panel in mohair or silk for an added touch of luxury.
