Relax and enjoy the knit!

Everything about this shawl is meant to be easy, from the effortless garter stitch to the simple yet eye - catching nupp stripes.

The uncomplicated design showcases a gorgeous new yarn, Balayage, which I developed in collaboration with a local yarn company, Pascuali Filati Naturali. I created the color palette,
and together we decided on weight, fiber content, and spin.

The result is a stunning yarn with a fantastic feel that’s perfect for colorwork shawls, sweaters, and accessories!
