This squiggly shawl was inspired by the Speckle & Pop shawl with its graphic short rows and eyelets. This new shawl features three colors that wave and wiggle using increases and decreases. Short row wedges are highlighted with eyelet rows using a mohair silk contrast color. The squiggles are framed with graphic short row stripes for the wingtips, so you can wrap and tie the playful shawl around your neck.
