Many Good Wishesis a crazy wrap, just glorious to drape around your body. Two hanks of hand-dyed yarn, one 4ply and one dk, are used to create the shawl. MGW has lots of short-row shaping (turn and wrap), pompoms and i-cord embellishments. You’ll end up with a weird triangle. It is large and enveloping to swoosh around you for work or play.
