The Making Comfort Shawl is a classic top-down, triangular shawl. Rows and rows of garter stitch are broken up with a simple, easy to memorize, chunky textural stitch. The shawl is finished off with an elegant ribbed border. Knit up in an absolutely stunning and buttery soft lamb Rambouillet, this project is just the comfort every knitter needs and loves— a comfort to knit, and a comfort to wear!
