Rustic Reset

In DK weight yarn, Patterns, Scarves, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available by Shannon

Sometimes, you just need a knitterly palate-cleanser. A project that is simple enough to work on whenever you have a spare moment, but enjoyable to bring into existence. There’s nothing like a simple, textured shawl in a lovely, rustic yarn to give you that project-reset. Mix and match two colors in a DK-weight yarn to create a Rustic Reset of your very own.
