"The Piraguas Shawl is a light and airy shawl made with just one skein of self-striping, cotton-blend sock yarn, reminiscent of shaved ice treats. This pattern is beginner-friendly (or “I’m watching streaming”-friendly). This triangular shawl can easily be adjusted to your preferred wingspan. The cheerful colors reminded me of the Puerto Rican shaved ice treats that were all over New York City in the summer when I was a kid. Until a few weeks ago, I hadn’t seen a piraguas cart in years. When I spotted one recently in Chelsea, I was so happy to see this tradition is still alive. "
