Inspired by the Spanish dunes, beaches and boardwalks this shawl came alive and is knitted in a soft woolen yarn with a touch of luster.


Dunas is worked flat from the top down. Stitches are increased along the edges and along the center to create a shallow triangular shawl. Pattern is fully written and charted until one repeat of each section is done. A stitch count is added throughout the whole shawl.
