Entrapped is a hybrid crescent, half-circle shawl shaped to hug the shoulders and back. The mohair and silk blend create a translucent background which is accented with a plied silk and wool blend in a contrast color. Elongated stitches are slipped to create the delicate mesh fabric.

Instructions include an Alternative Short-Row Section which results in a shawl approximately 1” less deep in the center back.
