Volare is the Latin and Italian word for the verb to fly; adding an acute accent on the final e (volaré), it is also the Spanish word for “I will fly.”


It’s always freezing at my office.  I always have to wear a shawl.  Said shawl usually has to be conservative, particularly when we are expecting clients.


When I saw this Kauni colorway, I KNEW it would be perfect for this type of shawl.


This is a quick and easy design you can knit until whenever you feel like stopping, run out of yarn, or just feel the shawl is the perfect size.

  1. Ooo! Very nice! I was wearing Lily today at the office. Menopausal freakin’ meadows there. The Menopausal Mamas crank up the A/C because hey, they’re the one person out of ten that’s hot. Why shouldn’t they have 100% control of the thermostat? I can’t wait til we move to Newark. I swear I shall never ever be one of those Meno-mamas that force my hormonal swings on others when my time comes.
    But back to your shawl–very nice!! I’ve never seen such a subdued Kauni color.

  2. Wow that’s so pretty. It’s always cold in my office too. How ironic that I wore a shawl yesterday.
    I’ve got the perfect yarn and COLOR to make that shawl 😆

  3. Wow, that is beautiful and I could have definately used one today at work. Yet another pattern to add to my wish list. I still have to purchase the yarn for my last purchase from you.

  4. Ummmm, they got SOAP…And I didn’t? I am crying foul here, dude! 😥 I guess you call me chopped liver?
