Sweet November Shawl from Ravelry

"When chill November's surly blast makes fields and forest bare." - Robert Burns

Even though this shawl is knitted entirely in lace style, and almost looks like you could crochet it instead (which you probably can, but I prefer knitting), it will still keep you warm in cold temperatures, provided you use the right yarn. For this one, I used a chunky weight 100% wool yarn made in Ireland (yes, the fact that it's Irish does make a difference), and it's extremely cozy on cold days. The original pattern calls for a 100% cotton yarn, which is lighter and can be used in warmer climates/temperatures.

You can download the pattern here.

Good luck!
