The Snuggle Shawl is the simplest knit in the world and really, the word pattern is a bit misleading. It's a single row knit over and over. Of course does that really matter as long as the yarn is absolutely gorgeous? Our version is knit in 3 skeins of our Mohair Lace base in 'Nude' (undyed) but it can be knit in any of our dyed Mohair Lace!
You can find all of our in stock Mohair Lace here.

Finishing & Care
Sew in ends using the yarn needle, block (optional), wear, look fab! Perhaps post a pic on Instagram, tagging us @bansheeyarns & using hashtag #bansheeyarns
Care: My experience of this shawl is that it shouldn’t be submerged fully in water but rather spot cleaned and aired.
