Product description

Drape yourself in timeless texture with the Perch Shawl, a triangular half hap in featherweight Loft. Perch begins at its center point with Old Shale lace that then grows outward rather like alluvial fans. This motif is interrupted by regular intervals of stockinette, creating rippling bands that look handsome from both right and wrong sides. Concentrated at the edges are yarnover increases for width. This placement omits the center spine found in most triangular shawls, allowing the motif to traverse the full expanse of the fabric, to be finished with a prim and elegant yarnover edging.
