Inspired by the giant bees tended by Beorn the skin-changer in Tolkien’s work The Hobbit, and by the simple comfort of the hobbits themselves, this triangle shawl is worked diagonally from one point to the opposite side - the striping is a perfect compliment to hand dyed yarn and the construction allows you to use every beautiful yard.

I used 1 hank each of colors #419 Brass Button and #418 Gaslamp.
