Lets Stitch Together shawl worn kerchief-style

Let’s Stitch Together

As I designed this shawl, I kept singing a shawl-inspired version of Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together, and once the shawl was done, I could not get it out of my mind. Hence the Let’s Stitch Together Shawl, inspired by the dyer who provided the yarn (and love), Stitch Together Studios. Snag a gradient kit and a full skein of a semi-solid and start singing yourself through this fun knit.
