Cloud On Her Shoulders - New Knitting Pattern

Like most people of my age, I have lost friends and family to cancer. Too many of them. Let's face it, even one person lost is too many. I hope sales of this pattern will allow me to make a difference.

This pattern may be purchased HERE for $3.00. Or if you visit Pattern Fish, it is also available HERE (And honored I am to be sold on that site, it's amazing!) I will donate one dollar from each pattern purchased to Susan G. Koman For The Cure
If you don't knit, or just don't want the pattern, please consider donating directly by following the link above.

Pattern Details:
Feather Light
Cozy Warm
Easy and Portable
One Size fits up to 4XL
$1.00 from each purchased pattern goes to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation
Also, it uses just 1 skein of knit picks Suri Dream (143 yards)

People who have had shoulder injuries, or older folks who are a little frail can be very vulnerable to cold, yet find heavy shoulder coverings uncomfortable. People receiving cancer treatment sometimes feel very chilled, and any extra weight can feel like a burden. This shawl will keep them warm, with almost no added weight.
The curved back and neckline means the shawl sits securely on the shoulders, and does not roll or fold uncomfortably against the back when seated. It has the added advantage of being extremely compressible, so it can be smooshed into a small container for travel and will be just as fluffy and warm when it's taken out for use

Beautiful. That looks like the one I knit Helen in my book, warm and solid and just the right size. Well done!
