Soft, floaty, and warm are the words that come to mind for Lori Kaake’s Embrace, a triangular shawl worked from the top down in luxurious DK-weight Phoebe. The stockinette stitch body allows the yarn’s subtle variegations to shine, while the textural bee stitch border provides the perfect finishing touch.
