When I came across these two colors sitting next to each other in the yarn shop, I immediately saw images of fall. Being in the desert, I miss the colors of fall, I miss the crunch of crisp leaves on the ground and this yarn spoke to my soul. I could not put them down and truly enjoyed creating this elegant shawl that could be worked in almost any colors you choose, or take your inspiration from nature and create your own fall themed piece to match where you call home.

Shawl is working from the top-down in typical triangular shawl construction. Panels of Stockinette balance 3 lace panels that are worked in a contrasting color.
