Distinction is a top-down triangle shawl that knits up quickly, and is meant to drape loosely.

Remember to be mindful of which colors you use together. When choosing your three colors, think of them in a black and white photo together. Is there great contrast between them? Good! You want that.

I also recommend you try this new (fall 2013) yarn. It is fantastic! (I used colors Borrajas- 58 /Teal Feather-412 /Mostaza-31)

And thank you for taking a look!
