Andrea Mowry Hug Hug Kiss Kiss Shawl or the Honey Moss Shawl



Hug Hug Kiss Kiss Shawl available HERE on Ravelry   

This shawl combines squishy garter, elongated stitches, bobbles, soft drapey yarn and some pops of color - the prime ingredients for a fun-to-knit and cozy-to-wear shawl! The elongated crossed stitches and bobbles remind me of X’s & O’s - wrap yourself up in some hugs and kisses!!

DETAILS

This shawl is knit sideways, increasing along one edge to create an asymmetrical shawl. The first half of the shawl is cables, which then give way to lace once we have built up a larger stitch count.

Worsted Weight Merino/Linen Blend
500 g/985 yds/900 m
