This shawl is worked in two colours and plays with a combination of garter stitch, stripes and a beautiful mosaic motif.
The effect of reversing the colours provides some extra interest.

Herbarium is a large sideways bias-knit triangular shawl which is easy & cozy to wear.

The mosaic motif in an easy to work stitch pattern that uses slipped stitches and only one colour per row.
