We’re Making Waffles! is an asymmetrical shawl that was designed in collaboration with Knits4Comfort Yarns. Jenn has terrific colorways! Thankfully she picked out the colors this time, otherwise I might still be deciding.

Alternating bands of garter stitch with a slipped stitch pattern creates an interesting textured knit. I've flipped the color dominance in the Waffle Stitch to create contrast.
The pattern is quick to knit and easy to follow. Tables are included in the pattern to keep track of your rows and stitch count. Finished Size
