Settle in on the couch with your needles and enjoy this comfort knitting project, mixing rows of garter stitch for relaxation with a few rows of eyelets and braids to keep it interesting. Easily adjustable, you can add, or subtract a pattern repeat to make this cozy shawl bigger or smaller! The pattern includes written instruction, and a video is provided to help you execute the lateral braid stitch. Sample garment shown was knit using 850m (925 yds) of a 100% wool yarn, and the designer assures us that 5 balls (one full bag) of elann.com Freeport Aran should be just right to knit her cosy Homestead Shawl.
