Feel the warmth of the sun and the kiss of rainforest mist as you immerse yourself in the rich details of Mugho. Inspired by the playful shapes found in monstera plants, this shawl sings with plump stitch definition in Peerie’s 100% merino. Equally scintillating on both sides, this fully reversible design is a visual treat of undulating botanical motifs. Rivulets of ribbing cascade down the planes of this triangular shawl, adorned by clever garter lace accents. The rhythmic harmony between solid fabric and peekaboo openings enriches the mirrored effect of this dynamic accessory.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.
