“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either” 
- Elizabeth Zimmerman.

Find inner peace and serenity as you knit the Āio Shawl with its all-over leaf-like lace patterning, evoking the stillness and peace that one can find in nature. The lace design provides both an engaging and repetitive knit so that adventurous beginners and experienced lace knitters will find that this pattern satisfies their creative itch for a challenge or familiarity. 

The size is easily adjustable, making it a perfect fit for one cozy skein wonders (measuring 400 yards) or larger yardages. Wrap yourself up in elegant splendor while enjoying the sunlight in a green pasture and making the most of those still moments.

This shawl was made in collaboration with Circus Tonic Handmade, an indie yarn biz located in Sydney, Australia. It was absolutely loIely to knit with: it's soft, elastic, bouncy, and easy on the fingers and needles. I'm giving away two skeins of Hannah's Revelry in her lovely Southern Fulmar colorway, as seen in the sample shown here. Two winners will receive one skein each, which will be enough to knit up a slightly smaller Aio Shawl.
