This cosy shawl is worked in garter stitch in two colours. It is creating a fascinating effect by making use of the interplay of alternating garter bands, slip-stitch stripes and reversing colours.
It‘s an easy to wear, eye-catching shawl that will keep you warm throughout the colder days of the year :)
