Cabin Shawl features graphic colorwork pattern, resembling embers from a fireplace glowing like fiery jewels, casting an orange glow on our faces, as we are gathered around it. The heat from the fireplace feels like a soft embrace, enveloping us all in a comforting blanket of warmth on a frosty night. The smoke rises up to the sky like a prayer, carrying our hopes and dreams with it.

Cabin Shawl is a trusty garter stitch triangle with a few rows of lovely garter stitch colorwork, looking almost like scales on a dragon. The shawl is worked from the top down in one piece.
