One fun thing about a single-ply yarn like Lanaloft is that it has a tendency to track (the yarn fulls when washed giving a patterned look, even to plain weave like this). This comfy and warm large shawl can be worn inside and outdoors--a great item to snuggle up in. Using five colors, it is a true plaid with the same color sequence in the weft as in the warp. It is woven using Lanaloft Sport, a 100% wool yarn sett at 10 epi. This is a winner of a project--very soft, very warm, very handy!
