This fluffy colorful shawl was inspired by the beautiful shape and color of a monarch chrysalis. I combined Melted Baby Suri and Pure Merino Fingering from Qing Fibre for a wonderful mix of textures. Shawl construction is a fun twist on a traditional triangular shape with lots of stripes, eyelets, and brioche!
