Leoma shawl

Job type Test knit

A simple triangluar shawl that's perfect for showing off a luxurious DK weight yarn. Two colours are worked in moss stitch to create textured stripes inspired by sunlight slanting between trees. Choose colours with high contrast for a dramatic look, or lower contrast for a subtle, shifting effect.
