Sick Day Shawl PDF
The Sick Day Shawl by Kate Atherley is an interesting-but-not-too challenging shawl pattern and the perfect way to and entertain yourself when you’re feeling under the weather or just a little less than motivated. Only basic knitting skills required: as long as you can knit and purl and increase and decrease, you’ll be fine. It’s helpful if the decongestant you’re taking leaves your head clear enough to count stitches and rows, too.
