A shawl in honor of The Fields Park!

This squishy little project features a fun pairing of simple lace and a basic cable, combining classic elements of Celtic imagery in celebration of St. Patrick, (Padraig is the traditional Irish form of the name Patrick). A fast knit, this project is perfect for any time of year. Bring a little luck o’ the Irish to your knitting!
