A hug of a shawl, Higham begins with a lace border. Pretty shapes give way to strong geometric stripes that allow for colour play and choices with endless possibilities. This generous triangle transitions easily from the lace border, without the need to pick up stitches, before you move onto the meditative striping sequence. Higham is an accessory that combines a love of stripes with something a little feminine and soft. Instructions in the pattern are both written and charted.
