Pattern Description:

Wrap yourself in this sweet little pair of shawls/shawlettes. Both shawlettes are knit in one piece (including the edging!) from tip to tip.

Flicker and Flame, while quick to knit, make wonderful gifts and are great take along projects as well as the shorter length rows make them easy to put down and pick up later without losing your place.

Instructions for BOTH shawls are included with this pattern. The pattern is fully charted, however, a few beginning rows are written out to aid novice chart readers in following along, so don't be intimidated if you are new to charts!
