Shortbread Shawl Kits
Shortbread Shawl by Lauren Rad
Like shortbread, this shawl is meant to be a comfort, full of simple texture and a few delicate details that will feel soothing and warm when you put it on. Feel free to experiment with using heavier yarn, removing the bobbles, or adding/removing repeats of the seed stitch bands – because like a good shortbread, this shawl can be modified in lots of ways.
