Knit some cheer into your dreary winter days with this Winter Wildflower Knit Shawl Pattern! The muted, yet feminine, colors really help this shawl pattern stand out from the crowd, and will look gorgeous with your favorite neutral cold-weather outfit.  This super easy and quick knit shawl takes very little skill to complete, so even knitters who have never tried knitting a shawl before will be able to pull this one off with relative ease. Since the bulk of this pattern is made in stockinette stitch with very few openings, we recommend it for the cold months where you could use a little extra warmth.
