Wrapped in a Hug - Shawl

During these last years of the pandemic that have been so difficult and we felt so isolated from our families and friends, the thing I missed the most were the hugs! These tight hugs where we show all our love and tenderness to the people we love. I felt the need to create a beautiful encouraging shawl that represents all these hugs that are about to come and make us so happy again! A shawl that makes us feel JOY! A shawl where we can feel ‘Wrapped in a Hug’ when it wraps us!

Wrapped in a Hug is an asymmetric, one-size shawl that is divided into two parts. 

The first part is an easy 2x2 ribbing in the main colour. A beautiful contrast coloured yarn wraps around 6 ribbing stitches and creates smocked ribbing wraps, alternating all around the shawl. The second part, the border, is based on the Chevron Stitch. Three layers of Garter Chevron Stitch give a nice texture to the shawl. A bit before the bind-off, a row of pink bobbles makes the final edge more romantic and elegant.
