Flipping Your Fins Shawl

ILK_june_small-20

This is a bottom up crescent shawl that was inspired by the arrival of June. The vibrant tonal coloring of this hand-dyed yarn from the swatch reminds us of the many blues and greens one appreciates while watching the waves in the summer evenings. The size and shape of the shawl lends itself to be worn either traditionally or draped in a number of ways around the neck.
