Happy times pattern
Right now we all need a little escape and happier times, so I created a happy shawl. It’s a big crescent shape with lots of changes build in from yarn weights, textures and colors. There are also changing stitch patterns to keep you happily occupied, such as stranded knitting and a lovely textured border. It finishes with an I-cord bind off done in two colors. One great project to use up your stash yarns!
