The Sequoyah Shawl is knit from the neck down using basic techniques to create an arresting textured shawl. The pattern of Stockinette, purl ridges, and lace is reminiscent of tree rings: how annual changes in the environment influence the thickness and texture of each growth ring. This half-circle shawl is knit in Charlemont, a soft wool blend with a lovely sheen.
