My Our Hands Shawl is a hybrid triangle shawl design (knit + crochet) inspired by the coming together of crafts/communities and the ability to create beauty with multiple mediums. Paying homage to the textures of eucalyptus and sage foliage, the sounds of a cool breeze blowing through the windows, and the clean crisp scent of summer by the beach, this shawl seamlessly combines both knitting and crochet into one project. I envision this shawl being worn either front and center in a bandanna style or wrapped around your shoulders in the cooler spring/summer evenings. With relaxing crochet textures, stockinette, and pops of “focus-on-me” sections, this makes for a lovely everyday spring/summer shawl!
