Bachi Shawl

The new oversized yarn balls from Noro are perfect for these quick, bulky shawls! Using just two balls, this asymmetrical pattern knits up quickly on size 13 US needles. And we love the vibrant color options. Wrap yourself up in color and warmth with a design that’s fun to knit and fun to wear!
