Product description

Redshift is a project for the adventurous spirit — a graphic shawl knit circularly to a point in stranded colorwork, opened with a hand-sewn steek, and finished with a multi-directional garter edge. This shawl is the perfect opportunity to expand your skill set and add a jolt of energy to your wardrobe. Wear it loud and proud with a bright, high-contrast color combination or tone it down with a subtle pairing of neutrals or closely related hues from the Loft palette.

Redshift is also available as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS.
