Willa Cather was an American author who achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, in works such as O Pioneers!, My Ántonia, and The Song of the Lark.

Willa Cather was one of my favorite authors as a young girl, and as an adult, I keep returning to her books again and again. I dedicate this colorful, exuberant design to her memory.

This very wearable, three-panel, two-color, highly textured shawl is worked top down in three equal panels, which offers a raglan-like fit around the shoulders and a flat-across-the-bottom sillhouette.
