Inspired by utilitarian working shawls, this large heirloom piece features a center-out contsruction and an intricate lace motif framing the simple, geometric center. Worked in a lofty fingering weight wool, it creates a warm and cozy fabric that invites snuggling up under. Use it as a dramatic wardrobe accessory, an special heirloom baby shawl, or even as a lightweight throw in your living space – versatility is one of the hallmarks of this design.
