Eyelet bands set off easy stockinette stitch sections in this triangular shawl.

Knit in a silky smooth 65% Viscose, 35% Linen blend, the shine and drape is as romantic as the story that inspired it.

The legend of Tristan and Isolde takes place during the Middle Ages, when knighthood and the chivalric code prevailed. The tragic story is of the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan and the Irish princess Isolde. Since it first appeared in the 12th century, this popular tale has had a substantial impact on Western art and literature to include the romance of Lancelot and Guinevere in King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in the land of Camelot.
