Laura Aylor shares her inspiration for her Therapy
shawl. "In the midst of several demanding knits, I craved garter stripes,
simple eyelets, and picots. It had to be almost mindless, easy to put down and
pick up so that I could squeeze it in among other things, and be appropriate for
using a variegated yarn with a couple of supporting solids. All these things
make this shawl great vacation knitting!
If you want a really mindless knit, this pattern includes a
separate pdf with row-by-row instructions which includes stitch counts for every
row. You can simply check off each row as you knit it. The row numbers are
consistent between the two formats, so you can switch from one to the other at
