Shawl of Destiny
Short Description: Do you have skeins of contrastng yarn that are destned to be together? The Shawl of Destny began with a colour combinaton that was hauntng me - it was sure was to become my new favourite shawl. The triangular shape lends itself to many wearing optons: scarf, shawl, kerchief style and more. The patern is a combinaton of textures and colour, with satsfying garter sttch sectons interspersed with geometric lace a fresh and modern combinaton. Shawl of Destny is worked from the top down.
