No fuss summer knitting - two free patterns

A free shawl pattern and a free scarf pattern, suitable for a man, both perfect for summer warm weather knitting, both interesting no-brainers.  No oxymorons here, it's true: interesting patterns you don't have to think about. So whilst sitting at the beach, talking to friends and family, you can still keep knitting without losing your place in the pattern.

Both of these projects are extremely portable and won't take up much room in your travel bag. Don't stop knitting and get ahead on your gift list!
