Corner Brook shawl pattern by Allison O’Mahony
Growing from the centre outward, decreasingly wide stripes of simple lace and plush garter stitch alternate to form this cozy square shawl. Knit in a worsted weight yarn, this is an impressive piece with a surprisingly simple construction. Wear it over a coat as the ultimate cold weather fashion accessory, or snuggle up underneath its significant size at home.
