I created this shawl in memory of my mom. The shawl describes her very well as it is colorful, happy, simple yet stylish and sweet.

The shape is asymmetric and offers many different stitch patterns, so this project never gets boring. There are color changes, seemingly floating stitches, eyelet stitches This is a cozy, very comfy and a really good size shawl, so you can wrap yourself up in and escape the world~
