Here, in my second design, I combine a dyer who I have followed for many years, A Verb for Keeping Warm and a classic crescent shawl shape to create a modern, wearable statement shawl. A classic garter stitch crescent shawl, SINUOUS is a bold, modern and wearable statement piece. SINUOUS is an easy knit with just enough interest to keep you interested to the end and finished with a lovely I-cord edge. Once off the needles, you will love how elegant you feel when wrapped up in your own SINUOUS!
