A delicate texture complimenting the complexity of each cable brings a balance to the Merlot shawl, just like a glass of fine wine.

This shawl is designed with an Icord edge and bind off, giving the edges a smooth finished look. A balance of 3 cables along the edge, full of texture and elegant drape.
