This is the best friendiest shawl you’ll ever see! My bestie Lorajean and I collaborated on the color ways and yarns used, and we’re releasing it to celebrate Best Friend’s Day, which is June 8th. It’s also a part of the League of Busy B’s, which is a pattern-and-social club that’s just full of friendship.

This shawl and its companion cowlette were designed to showcase both some beautiful yarns AND a beautiful friendship. LJ and I have been friends for a loooooong time, and our friendship is one of the most special relationships we both have. We are birthday twins, we work closely together on oodles of things, we both deep-dive into crafty (and sometimes non-craft) obsessions, and we text a bazillion times a day. As the My Little Ponies say, “friendship is magic,” and I’m here to tell you that is true, true, true.

Head to the Knitted Wit website to get yarn for the shawl, and join us in a KAL that starts on June 18th.

Yarn: approximately 725 yards/663 m fingering-weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit Fairy Floss in Storyteller (cA, 375 yds/343 m) and Sock in Pollen (cB, 350 yds/320 m) for the yellow bobbled one and Pixie Plied in Unicorn Giggles and Sock in Peachberry Sparkle for the peachy-pink bobbled one.
Needles: US5/3.75mm (or size to obtain gauge) circular needle, 24”/60 cm or longer.
Notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle.

18 sts & 38 Rs= 4”/10 cm in garter stitch, measured after blocking.
18 sts & 32 Rs = 4”/10 cm in stockinette with bobbles, measured after blocking.

Wingspan: 75”/190.5 cm; length: 66”/167.5 cm; width at bind-off edge: 47”/119.5 cm, measured after blocking.
