Pattern Description:

Portland can be a bit...damp in the winter. Knitting shawlettes helps me laugh at those clouds, and keep that sun in my heart. It's a glorious feeling when you've got a shawlette like this to wear. The short rows add both knitting interest and give the finished piece a great shape - it hugs you as you wear it, just like good knitting should.
