Short Description: Vexillum is an elongated triangle shawl that utilises a lace motif, reminiscent of the pattern created by feather vanes, to create the spine increases. This is juxtaposed against stocking stitch and blocks of garter stitch stripes.â€¨The feather vane spine stitch pattern is replicated on the ever-growing and gently curving wings of this shawl to create a lightweight and functional beauty. This is a shawl of escapism, freedom and exploration; flyaway yet comforting.
