#91 XOXO Shawl PDF
The Valley Yarns XOXO Shawl design began with the XOXO Baby Blanket, woven in 6/2 cotton, then we decided that moms would also love something snuggly to wrap themselves in. What better yarn to feel like a hug than Hatfield—a cloud of baby alpaca. The deflected double weave done in this fine yarn creates sweet circles and soft layers and displays a different color emphasis on each side.
