This shawl is really an excuse to pick three yummy colours to blend together. The meditative lull of the linen stitch will captivate you and mixing the colours together is extremely satisfying.
This minimalist shawl was designed to show off the wool – a lively, lofty tweed wool that blocks like a dream. Also, you will be able to use up every precious bit of it. No leftovers.
