Eastham Shawl is a great go-to shawl to make and to wear. This 2-color shawl is perfect for relaxing knitting. Lately, I’ve been drawn to simple designs that embrace the idea of miles and miles of plain stockinette with short bursts of mindfulness.

As life gets increasing more hectic and demanding, I find I need projects that are quick and easy, and fit my style and lifestyle. The Eastham Shawl embodies this concept, perfectly.

The shawl is worked from the top-down in St st with raglan style shaping in the main color down to the color change eyelet section and lace edging. The body is simple stockinette to allow for mindless knitting and then finishes with a lace edging requiring a bit more mindfulness thoughts.
