The Tank Stream is the waterway that sustained the first convict settlement during the late 18th century in Sydney, Australia. Tank Stream shawl is a huge cosy wrap, knitted in garter stitch, with a cascade of relaxed cables down one side. The shawl was created using Fair Dinkum DK, a soft and sustainable merino wool yarn, from Dingo Dyeworks.
