Inspired by fractals and flowers, this large, drapey shawl features an amorphous, flattering shape that can be worn any number of ways. The simple stitch pattern showcases a variegated yarn to its best advantage, and the edge, trimmed in a contrasting color, is allowed to roll slightly, evoking delicate flower petals.
