The Bay Ridge Shawl softly combines color and texture to create a warm layering piece. Three different yarns fade in and out of one another in this simple top-down triangular shawl. Eyelets are worked at the lower edge of the piece, later adorned with fringes that include all three yarns from the body of the shawl plus mohair for an extra-soft haze.
