The Alyeska Shawl hails from the great land to the north. So easy to knit, yet so lovely to wear. Designed in the “Dream” blend of Qiviut, Cashmere and Silk from Arctic Qiviut, this incomparably soft and gorgeous piece is ultra light yet ultra comfortable. It’s like wrapping yourself in a cloud!

The pattern combines staggered cables separated by a stitch that is intentionally dropped at the end of the project for a dramatic look.
