Designed to make the most of the Koigu pencil box set featuring 10 colours, Venation Shawl will keep you inspired to knit as you work toward each colour. Simple shaping also keeps the project interesting and results in an easy-to-wear shallow triangle shawl. It is inspired by the venation structure of leaves, and the autumnal colours chosen for the sample reflect this. Of course, any colour fade combination will shine with this project as will knitting a solid colour version, allowing the venation structure to be the focal point.
