Garter sections take turns with mesh in this eye-catching shawl, which is knit down and out from the center using short rows to add an asymmetrical touch.

Named for the truly special Heidschnucke sheep from Northern Germany, this shawl evokes the rare breed’s stark color variations and a playful blend of textures.

Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy gives crisp stitch definition and a soft, snuggly feel.
