Lavender Fields Shawl

Description

The Lavender Fields Shawl is a tribute to the wisdom of taking time out. It is a variation of the traditional hap shawl construction with a modern colour-blocked edge. The sway of the restful garter stitch is enlivened with eyelet details and a band of sweet lavender-inspired lace at the border. The delicate picot bind-off is a refreshing design detail to finish off this restorative and relaxing knit.

Deep rest is elusive. Real, true rest with no demands, no interruptions, no obligations. It is difficult to come by, but so powerful. This is how we replenish our energy and our creativity. It’s how we come back to ourselves and feel whole again in a world that’s often fragmented and overwhelming. But deep in the lavender fields rest is waiting. Surrounded by the soft lullaby scent of countless tiny flowers, all we need to do is breathe.
