• I designed this for my dear friend Karen. The diamonds at the top are because her friendship is more valuable to me than gemstones, the hearts are for love, and the semi-circles in the border are the hugs that I give her long distance because she lives more than 600 miles away.

    Shawl starts at the center top with a tab cast on, and grows out and down from there.
