Combine classic stripes with lace for a relaxed shawl to enjoy year-round. Asymmetrical triangular shaping is easy to wear and so satisfying to knit. Choose boldly contrasting yarns or knit your Melaleuca up with a more subtle variegated yarn and solid colour combination as I did with mine. I loved knitting this as I moved to my new coastal home. The play of colours in this shawl echoes the dappling light in the lovely Melaleuca trees prevalent along the coast.

Yarn kits in the original colours are available from Happy Hank Yarn co.
