The outstanding range of Jill Draper’s colors beautifully evoke the palette of popular 1970’s painters. Bold, geometric paintings by artists like Marta Minujin, Yayoi Kusama, Frank Stella, and Sol LeWitt inspired this wrap, and you will find inspiration in the works of the artists listed above as you choose your own colors.

The shawl is worked in two pieces - one large and one small — which are joined using kitchener stitch for a smooth finish.
