Zane Shawl by Ambah O'Brien | Worked in DK weight, Zane is a large, cozy triangular shawl that looks great on both guys and gals. Wear it draped at the front kerchief-style, folded as a scarf, or looped casually as a more traditional shawl. Have fun with your colour selections to create a dynamic version—perfect for using up stash—or keep it sophisticated with a two-colour variation. Either way, Zane is sure to be a hit! Zane is a soothing knit that is perfect for beginners, with simple increases and decreases, a relaxing project for seasoned knitters.
