A companion piece to the Palmaria Shawl, part of the Northern Landscapes Collection, part 2. The slip stitch pattern was inspired by the waved ridges of seaweed left on the rocky shores at Cape Norman, Newfoundland. Palmaria palmate, often known as Dulse, is a seaweed commonly found in the north east Atlantic.

This piece is also an homage to the ever popular Bias ‘Before & After’ Scarf by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.
