Inspired by bare branches and sparkling frosts, this easy shawl plays with luxurious contrasts. The opaque stripes give weight and drape, adding warmth on a chilly evening. The sheer, gently sparkling stripes give a hint of what’s hiding underneath.
This is a perfect first triangle shawl. You can get to understand how the shape is made top-down, but with no fiddly lace because the yarns do the work for you.
Knitting doesn’t have to be difficult to be beautiful.
Made with just one skein of each yarn, this makes a great gift for a more experienced knitter to make too.
