CIRRUS and SHADOW is a comfortable and soft shawl that grows effortlessly – worked in two different yarn weights, (double-knitting and 4ply) and two different types of yarn. CIRRUS and SHADOW has an interesting motif that increases in blocks, by adding on stitches using the cable cast-on method.
Uncomplicated to make – the two colours and weights of yarn gives you a feeling of movement, with a dark shadow edging that balances the block diamond motif section. Fasten with a shawl-pin from our collection, or just drape over your shoulder for a statement and warm cover-up.
