tortoiseshell
textural lace to keep you wrapped up warm

This simple triangular shawl is designed to be large and extra cozy for maximum comfort, and the alpaca brings a delicious drape to the finished piece.

The lace stitch pattern features flowing organic lines that weave in and out for a textured effect.

This pattern was originally published in Laine Magazine Issue 6.
