Description

The Veranda Shade Shawl celebrates the luxurious laziness of summertime. This classic crescent shawl is ideal holiday knitting: enough interest to hold your attention, but simple enough that you can daydream over your work. The Veranda Shade Shawl starts off with laid-back garter stitch and then grows into a pattern of easy lace, recalling the slow rhythm of a rocking chair. As the relaxing lace repeats end, the pattern drifts back to finish with a wide garter stitch border.

A long summer’s afternoon. Heat shimmering in the distance. A soft drone of nearby wings and faraway lawn mowers as slow snippets of conversation rise and fall. It’s so warm that every slight breeze is a cherished blessing, but here in the shade, with an icy glass of something by your side, you’re just cool enough to be comfortable. In the contented haze of this rocking chair drowsiness, it’s so easy to drift and dream.
