Denim and dew, pattern
A striking mostly rectangular shawl with a bit of a twist.
Knitted sideways with two lace borders, the middle section features two cabled stripes flanked by relaxing garter stitches and two striped portions lending more color contrast.
Looking great from both sides, the back or the front side. The middle back is slightly elongated, so when turned upside down you can style your shawl with a bit of a collar. Basically all in all there are a lot of styling options. I hope you will enjoy your “Denim and dew” shawl!
