Interpretations Vol. 2 is the second design collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki; a magical collection featuring 12 patterns.

Squishy merino wool is paired with simple ingredients: garter stitch and twisted ribbing with some short rows to keep the process smooth. The shawl has almost unimaginable flow from the repeat of the two sections. Unimaginably easy and fun to knit as well and wonderfully warm to wrap around your neck.
