Ama-sei 亜麻製 (jap.) - flaxen.
This fun rectangular shawl is a beginner knitting project for someone who wants to learn how to knit lace.
The combination of fingering linen and cobweb merino yarns together create wonderful drapey accessory yet it’s cosy and comfortable. Perfect for chilly summer evenings as a wrap and it’s easy to bundle up in colder weather.
