Remember when you were a girl? Life was as easy as a garter stitch. Then a more interesting part came- your teen years. You discovered how everything got more complex, more exciting and sensual just like the lace part of this shawl. When graduated school you wanted to define the frames, but just for a while…After a strong garter stitch line the lace part expand, because you know that life is full of surprises, love and you enjoy your womanhood!
The shawl is designed especially for gradient hand dyed yarn. The lace pattern used in this design is very easy-to-memorize and shawl’s edges are knitted in garter stitch. Woman Story is classical, feminine and very modern at the same time. Choose the color to enhance your beauty.
