Maria's Favorite Shawl
This is Maria's Favorite Shawl for a reason. The chunky knit shawl pattern is as beautiful as it is cozy, but that's not it. The shawl is a simple, quick knitting project. The pattern is essentially a lacy repeat, and because it's knit with chunky yarn, you'll be finished in no time. The deep blues and grays of this pattern would look great with gold accessories. It may be called Maria's Favorite Shawl, but after you put it on, it'll be your favorite as well.
