 Ohana Shawl
I designed this shawl on a recent vacation to Hawaii. In the Hawaiian language, "Ohana" means "family" whether it be a blood-relation, adopted, or those you choose to make your family.

Whatever the case may be, it's a sentiment that perfectly embodies the intention behind this shawl design! I selected Berroco Remix yarn for this design for several reasons. For starters, this yarn has a soft, tweedy cotton feel, which makes it perfect for every member of your family, and is comfortable for just about any season. And, an exciting and fun reason is that we've spent the last seven months collaborating with Berroco on a new catalog that will debut this November. We've learned so much about Berroco during the process, for example, Berroco has been owned by the Wheelock family for six generations! So cool! It's this time spent in collaboration that has only further solidified Berroco's place in the Jimmy Beans Wool family. So you can see how the Ohana Shawl is truly all about family! It's also a super quick knit with simple patterning that is done on US 8 needles, so there is still plenty of time to make a few as gifts for the holidays!

From our family to yours, happy knitting!
