Winterlight is a reversible asymmetric triangular shawl, knitted on the bias, increasing outwards from one top corner of the triangle. Mesh lace sections, interspersed with cosy garter stitch and textural broken rib sections, create a shawl with visual interest and a soft fabric that drapes beautifully.
