This pattern was inspired during a girls’ knit day at a garden party. The colors of the plants, the promise of spring and summer, and all the hugs from good friends spun together to form the Girlfriends Shawl. Knitted out of a cotton and wool summer blend, it is a great shawl to toss on during cool spring and summer evenings out with your girlfriends. The shawl is knitted from side to side in simple garter stitch with small details on the edges.
