In Aran weight yarn, One skein projects, Patterns, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

Quick. Easy. Cozy. The simple yet pleasing Z (or as the Brits say, “zed”) motif on this shawlette shows off striped yarns to wonderful effect. You’ll find that after knitting one you’ll need another and another and another for every letter in the alphabet.
