SHIMA SHIMA

縞々 (jap.) – stripes

Stripes are fun and mindless! This garter stitch striped shawl is worked in one piece using modular construction. The ombré effect is achieved by working sections of main color together with one of the 3 colors in the palette. Transforming the resulting fabric into a bold graphic wrap!
