’esonta’ is a worked top down in the round. long enough to wear pulled over your head as a hood, it is just as nice snuggled down in soft folds around your neck. it widens gradually as it goes to allow the drape to sit sweetly on your shoulders.

its other secret? the textured stitch pattern looks great on both sides making it reversible.
