With its textured lace motif reminiscent of cicadas, Bayou announces the steamy days and cool nights of summer in a big way, especially when paired with our airy linen Kestrel. Using one of her favorite ways to construct a shawl—sideways, starting and ending with one stitch—Leila designed this piece to be a satisfying and quick knit.
