This shawl will keep you warm while looking flamboyant, edgy, swanky, and a whole bunch of other really great adjectives. Designed to be knit in two very different colourways, this looks best when you combine one tonal or semi-solid skein with a variegated or speckled yarn in a sharply contrasting shade. I knit this seven and a half foot shawl in 4 days -- a veritable knitting bender, hence the name.
