My comfort shawl - a basic knit with just a bit of pretty lace for femininity.
This shawl with a lace edge can be knit in garter or stockinette. Garter gives a nice squishy fabric that’s super cuddly, and feather & fan lace creates lovely scallops.
A perfect size to wrap up in that’s not too large, but can easily be modified. Shawl is knit top down beginning at the center neck, and worked toward the hem using increases to shape the top edge and spine, lace border is continued from the body and bound off.
