This new release by Laura Aylor, the designer behind Fogbound Knits is as elegant as it is warm. This is a big, cozy shawl in rustic, soft yarn with a lace arabesque detail (intricate but easy to work) surrounded by simple garter stitch. Winter Cardinal is worked on the bias in worsted weight yarn for maximum coziness. The lace section is both charted and written.
Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
