A striped triangular shawl with a geometric aesthetic, the JO SHAWL is the baby sister of the Josephine cardigan. With slipped stitches and just the right amount of lace at the end, this shawl is designed to incorporate those precious remnants of 4ply/ fingering yarn of any fibre.

The Jo Shawl is part of Recollection; a collection of accessories and garments designed specifically to highlight oddments of special skeins, material memories of projects, friendships, holidays and occasions.

These materials, with which we spend so much time when we knit, become impregnated with the memory of that project: the places we knit it, the person the finished object went to, the way we felt when we made it. Those things, feelings and memories are precious. This collection is designed to honour those memories, bringing them together in a conscious way to make a new knit incorporating those precious remnants.
