Squam Confidential was designed for Squam’s Spring 2016 retreat – and is as playful and creative as the retreat itself. This cheeky triangle shawl is knit from the center out, with a bold, outsized lace that knits up quickly while retaining elegance and drape. A slight indentation at the top center helps it fit snugly around the shoulders, while the wingspan is large enough to be worn scarf-style. It’s worked in Brooklyn Tweed Quarry, a lofty, bulky yarn with a slightly tweedy texture.
