Self-Care Shawl

This shawl is the epitome of knitterly self-care: all of the sections have a rhythm you can really get into; it’s a great excuse to pair two complementarily lovely colors; the yarn is domestic, soft, gorgeous, and bouncy; and the final object is a big hug of a shawl, perfect for snuggling under after a day spent resisting and persisting.
