When I designed this shawl, I was inspired by the colors of wood, stone, straw, & bone- colors that are a reminder of nature’s perpetual beauty and of our own transient presence on this earth.
The Wood, Stone, Straw & Bone shawl is worked flat from the top center out, increasing each right side row to gradually form a triangular shape. The finished size can be easily adjusted by working more or less rows of the main color sections.
