Vantage Point is classic top-down triangular shawl inspired by Michigan’s stunning Pictured Rocks National Shoreline. The color palette reflects three main elements seen along the shoreline. The blue represents the crisp, clear waters of Lake Superior. By contrast, the red and orange evoke visions of the copper water that bleeds from the cliffs. This quick knit uses a simple, yet interesting texture broken up with garter sections. No matter where your ‘Vantage Point’ lies, this wearable shawl is just the relaxing knit you need.
