Hug Hug Kiss Kiss
Hug Hug Kiss Kiss by Andrea Mowry
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!!
