Bassenfell

Bassenfell is an asymmetrical garter stitch shawl with three
columns of textural cluster stitches. It is worked from tip to tip with a clean i-cord edging to give it a graphic feel. Originally designed for Cumbria Fingering, this new version in Luma has beautiful stitch definition and a generous, cosy feel that is much needed on cool Spring days.
