FUBC 2 Shawl Pattern
Welcome to the FUBC 2 ShawlThe FUBC 2 pattern was originally designed and released to mark the completion of my good friend Susan Crawford’s Cancer treatment, to honour the amazing women with whom she shared that journey, and to raise funds for the local Cancer Care charity that supported them through it.
Originally designed using Susan’s limited edition yarn, Ghyll, it would also be fabulous in Susan’s Hand dyed Bluem sock yarn or you could choose your favourite sock or sportweight yarn and make it truly your own.
This wrap is knit from tip to tip with a garter body and knit as you go lace edging.
