Pops of color, loads of subtle texture and an edgy picot bind off! This shawl is everything fun! Knit in a beautiful cashmere blend its generous size will surround you with beauty and soft warmth. I designed this shawl in collaboration with Emma’s Yarn and Beautiful Syster bags, two teams of sisters working together, living their dream.

The shawl starts with a garter tab cast on, increases at the edge and along the center spine shape it into a deep triangle. Stripes of simple mosaic stitches break up sections of subtle texture and pops of color with strong eyelets dominate the center section it all finishes out with a picot bind off. All simple stitches so that you can relax and enjoy your knitting!
