This top-down design begins with easy garter stitch stripes featuring Walk Collection Cottage Merino. Yarn over eyelets shape the semi-circular shawl for easy meditative knitting. Large lace holes decorate the border with a glowing mohair silk contrast color. The holes increase in size and produce a lovely scalloped edging inspired by the mountains of Iceland.
