This big blanket shawl is indeed a Serene Embrace.
A timelessly beautiful field of 3-color interlocking squares is easily achieved with slipping of stitches. There are no floats to contend with in this style of color work, making it very achievable even for the newest of knitters. A simple 6-row repeat of knits, purls and slipped stitches is very easy to remember, and becomes wonderfully meditative. Energize the stitches with thoughts of love, joy, patience, serenity, or whatever you wish for the wearer.
