Short Description: Season’s End celebrates that changing of the seasons that seems to come all too soon. It’s a bitter-sweet time, those long carefree warm days draw to an end and the days grow shorter, but as knitters we feel great anticipation as the cooler months draw closer day by day. There is no better way to greet those cooler months than by costing up in a shawl that is inspired by the colours and atmosphere of this time of change. Season’s End is a crescent-shaped shawl bursting with lace, stripes and charisma.
