We wanted a shawl that works on all body shapes—one with colourful geometric patterning and plenty of length. Holli delivered. You can pass Tesserae Shawl around your shoulders twice or more and still tie it. Its unique shape, the merino- cashmere combo of hand-dyed Eden, and the mosaic patterning create a stand-out shawl for any season. And the squishy, soft garter stitch molds itself around your shoulders. You won't want to take it off. Ever.
Choose from two options for this product: Print Pattern (requires shipping), or PDF Download (instant download at checkout). Or, if you prefer, it's available through Ravelry here. We have also added an addendum (written instructions for the charted sections in the pattern). If you have already purchased the print version without the addendum, you can add the pdf of the addendum to your cart at no cost here.
