The Diatom Shawl takes its inspiration directly from nature, mimicking the ornate structure of its unicellular namesake. This impressive shawl is knit from the center-out, where the central motif grows into ever-widening ribs of lace. A beautiful, scalloped edge is highlighted with complementary colors that transition into progressively darker shades. Transforming science into art, this shawl uses a deceptively simple pattern to create this stunning effect.
