Farah is a generously sized asymmetric triangular shawl designed to keep you super cosy. Panels of simple lace span vertically throughout the shawl, lending a gentle feel to the fabric. Interspersed within these panels are colourful decorative motifs created with the woven inlay method that give the effect of a modern tapestry. Stick to a refined palette or let your creativity run wild and choose a myriad of colours!

There is a video tutorial to help with the inlay method. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_LrmwU20q8&t=10s
