Sophie Shawl - Large
As you know, I love to keep a simple knit in rotation, and the Sophie shawl was the perfect meditative knit that I could pick up and put down, even mid-row! Not only easy to knit, but it's also a piece that is effortlessly stylish. Long, tapered ends offer tons of styling and tying options, while the combination of Woolfolk Far and Biches et Bûches Petit Silk & Mohair will keep you cozy. I've now joined the Sophie club...are you going to join me?
Tip: I used a Cocoknits Split Ring Marker to mark the stitch each time I increased or decreased. Then, six rows up from the marker I had to repeat the action. Then I did not lose track or worry about counting, making it a perfect mindless knit.
