Fljót means river in Icelandic and when you think of a river, you imagine the water flowing, shifting and changing direction. Life is just like a river, it changes, twists and turns as you grow; from its source until it reaches its journeys end meeting the ocean.
This simple shawl pattern has been designed to allow you time to practice mindfulness as you knit: to relax and not stress about life’s journey.
It’s a one skein project that would be perfect for those pretties in your stash that you just don’t know what to make with; and you will never run out of yarn as you work the increase until you have half of your skein left.
