Postage Stamp Shawl

Description

This super-cozy triangle wrap in two sizes (petite/tall) features a throwback texture borrowed from old-fashioned “postage stamp” quilt patterns—with tidy alternating blocks worked in rich garter stitch and stockinette, then zipped together with a cute cable. The wrap is worked side to side, starting at the wide end; the stitch count diminishes with every right side row. The motif is incredibly simple to work, with wrong side rows all in purl stitch—just the project you’ll want to sit down with at the end of a hectic day.
