Named for a beautiful feature of classical architecture, Astragal brings to mind the fluidity the Old Masters. From solid marble came form, strength, and beauty; here interpreted as geometric keys bounding the sweeping drape and tidy lines of this cozy shawl together. Shaped gradually as an asymmetrical shawl,
Astragal is worked from end to end, allowing you to customize your
knitting and create your own masterpiece.
