Rosie Cotton Shawl

Details

The Rosie Cotton shawl is inspired by the hobbits of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The simplicity of the design and the natural beauty of the yarn echo the simplicity of the hobbits and their connection to good, solid earth. At the same time, hobbits have a joyful spirit of fun about them, too, and the playful touches of bobbles and chevron stripes sing of their ability to have a good time. The shawl uses conventional shaping to achieve a lovely crescent shape that drapes nicely over the shoulders. With a nice mix of stockinette and garter, it is quite enjoyable to knit; just engaging enough to stay interesting without requiring too much brain power.
