Inspired by winter, the Northern lights, an homage to all our fans in Canada, this shawl has a unique shape. We will be working over 3 charts at a time, the shape comes from 2 triangles and 3 wedges. Since it’s in our sport weight, it works up quickly and will keep you warm on these long winter nights. Have fun working with the hand paints and our different shape for shawls. Initially worked as a MKAL which will begin end of February, 2017.
