Fall on the farm is a time to cozy up around the fire and admire a period of death as the summer garden is plowed over, yet also beginnings as we sow seeds for new growth. We naturally find our rhythm moving inward: to the hearth, to the heart, to our hands. Let it draw us in…

It is with this season in mind that this piece was created as an element to add to your Hygge. This design uses the lovely Swans Island Sport yarn knit into a rhythmic, triangular textured shawl that finds itself resembling the wings of a moth, with a simple lace trim in the glowing chipotle.
