The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice.

“Who are YOU?” said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”

From Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll

Just like Alice, this shawlette changes from ribbing to cables and back again and is exactly the accessory to transform any outfit into something fit for Wonderland.

Worked in Gynx Yarns Single Merino in Wonderland.
