Designer Elizabeth Nihoniho calls her Hōtoke Shawl “a layer of textured cosy.” The easy-to-memorize stitch pattern and worsted-weight yarn make this shawl a quick, comfortable knit to snuggle up with on chilly winter days.

Worked from the bottom up with a garter-stitch border, this shawl is sturdy enough to bundle up against stiff breezes while still looking elegant.
