Last month, Shannon Cook posted a pic on Instagram that made my eyes pop out of my head. It’s basically the shawl-collared-blanket-with-arm-slits of my dreams, and the finished pattern, Veronika, went live yesterday. I’m imagining myself curled up in the corner of the couch someday, wrapped in one of these — oblivious to the godforsaken air vent behind the couch, thanks to the voluminous shawl collar — while knitting another one.

Just bought the pattern. So excited to cast on
Yes. Yes. Yes. This looks wonderful. To knit, to wear. Thank you for sharing!
How DID I miss this? I love it. This is exactly what I need for curling up on the sofa with hot tea and knitting in the winter months. If you decide to start a KAL, I’m in!
Love this one. I am always complaining about knitting small scarf patterns. What I need is large ones and this fits the bill.
Love it! I was just looking at similar style patterns yesterday, but this one is exactly what I was looking for!
I purchased a RTW “cocoon” (my word for it) very similar to this (minus the shawl collar) and absolutely love it! I also wear it when I’m out and about and receive compliments all the time. I’m ready to cast on for this…do I see a KAL in the fall? It would be perfect timing and so much fun!
I have to have this sweater even though I promised myself no more sweater knitting.
It’s not *really* a sweater! (I am the worst/best enabler, sorry ;))
It’s not *really* a sweater, it’s more a shawl with arm holes. You’re totally good! ;)
I may have to trade in my sofa for a giant cedar chest to store all of my cold house cozy knits! This is lovely.
I love this sweater, too! Its definitely a “curl up and knit (or read)” kinda wrap. Want…!
Isn’t it just the most fabulous knitted thing ever?! That collar is to simply to die for. I’m planning to make one in my spirit colour, heathery lilac and another in a mid-grey. I can totally see this as my *Forever* Favourite sweater. <3
Wonderful!!! Asks for special yarns!
I love this. It’s so dangerous/inspiring to follow your blog–I want everything! My ravelry favorites list just gets longer and longer!
I hope it is ok to note that Shannon is kindly offering a 15% discount until July 16th with code VERONIKA15. Many comments are saying it was a super fun knit.
I love this pattern! It’s a great silhouette. I released a similar pattern last year called the Rachel Wrap! It’s available here (& on Ravelry): http://www.freesiafibers.com/all/rachel-wrap
I’ve got some coveted Hole and Son yarn. I’m thinkin’ this may be the pattern.
Thank you for posting this! It’s the perfect staple for winter and fall and I can think of several yarn options I already have at home so I can start it this weekend.
Can anyone weigh in on some suggested yarns?
Cool wrap. Very much like this design that a Ravelry friend of mine (and gifted knitter) recently posted. The proportions are different (at least, in her test photo of a small size) and overall, it’s a bit less shrug-like, but the concept is very similar. I love it!
I just bought it too!!

I love this. I have some Peace Fleece, which is also a Rambouillet. I’m excited to start this.
