Hug Hug Kiss Kiss Shawl
by Andrea Mowry
This shawl combines squishy garter, elongated stitches, bobbles, soft drapey yarn and some pops of color – the prime ingredients for a fun-to-knit and cozy-to-wear shawl! The elongated crossed stitches and bobbles remind me of X’s & O’s – wrap yourself up in some hugs and kisses!!
For this shawl I chose worsted spun Baby Yak – which has a similar feel to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons. This worsted weight yarn creates an incredibly squishy shawl with stunning drape!
NOTE: *Andrea used 3 skeins for her sample, but one of her testers needed a 4th. Due to variations in knitting styles and gauge, she recommend purchasing a 4th skein just in case. If you want to do this, just combo with 4 MC in the option above.
Each kit contains the yarn you will need to complete your project.
The pattern is not included.
You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry here.

NOTE: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis we have, no bleaching or decoloring so depending on the shade of the natural fiber, each color will vary from season to season, making it darker or lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fiber and so the shade of the sample you see photographed, not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
