Three shawls, connected by wise color selection. Be brave and knit a loud shawl to attract attention or use different shades of just one color and enjoy the elegant effect. All three patterns are designed for lace / light fingering yarn, but the textured pattern provides an effective cover for Autumn months.

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.

Color Twister is a semi-circle shaped shawl, the border is knitted at the end, sideways.

Take the advantage for buying the whole collection for decreased price and knit eye catching accessories.
