What happens when you add short rows to one side of a circular shawl, but not the other? That was the question Kim wanted this shawl to answer. Rows of textured flame shapes decorate one half of this shawl, while the other half sports a simple Garter ridge pattern. The resulting shape is unique and wraps around you elegantly. Wear and make waves wherever you go!
