Malombre Shawl

6.00

Malombre is knitted with two strands of lace weight yarn. The tender dynamics of the shawl is given by the color change of one strand at a time in an easy and elegant stockinette background. The pattern is so easy to personalize: use different shades of one color, or chose contrasting colors for more drama, play with the width of the stripes or just use more colors.
