Anthriscus is a ‘V’ shaped shawl knit from tip to tip, starting at one end and increasing to the centre, working contrast central section with short rows then working decreases in the third colour to the opposite tip. When worn wrapped around, the first and third colours overlap and the third colour is not visible. This means you can play with fun colour contrasts and include a colour that you like, but don’t want to wear close to your face.

Knitted in textured stitches on 5mm needles the Fenella yarn creates a lovely fabric with fabulous drape.
