Have you ever wondered how you could translate your favourite paintings into other artistic languages? What would they be like as photography, music or… knitwear?
The three crescent shawls of this collection were all inspired by famous paintings. Naturally, my goal was not to make shawls that looked exactly like those paintings but to use them as kind of a compass when deciding on colours and creating texture.

Each pattern contains charted and written instructions as well.
