Motifs lifted from the Art Deco period are combined to create a lively texture across this asymmetric shawl in two sizes (petite/tall), meant to be worked in a shimmery yarn blend. While the visual effect is complex, the patterns are simple to work, relying on the tension of cable crosses to pull the ribbing back and forth; light and dark areas are the result of shifting fabric density. This design is worked in one piece from beginning to end and is easily resized.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.

Petite shawl is shown in Bare Naked Wools Deco, color Chrome
