Lilli Pilli is a beautiful Australian plant whose deep magenta berries inspired the colors of this shawl. Combine classic stripes with lace for a relaxed wrap to enjoy year-round. Worked on the bias in three fun colors; two striped together contrasted with a third for the lace sections. Lilli Pilli is fun to knit, and works up big and cozy. There are so many ways to use color in this project - let your stash out to play! Choose boldly contrasting yarns, knit your Lilli Pilli up with a more subtle variegated yarn and solid colour combination, or go with classic neutrals for a shawl you reach for regularly over the years to come.
