Comprised of 3 patterns, the Arch Shawl features stitch motifs inspired by elements of Venetian architecture. I don’t claim to be an expert on architecture, but the vast buildings throughout Italy inspired me to create shawls based on the styles used in their unique structures.
Squinch Shawl is modeled after the curious squinch arches used in buildings with domes. The tiny triangles hold up each vast roof, a centuries old marvel of engineering. Paried with garter stitch, this reversible stitch pattern makes excellent use of both lace and texture.
