Designer’s Description: When the highway of life throws you for a curve, make a statement! Streetscape is a garter stitch triangle shawl worked from tip to end, with a quirky zig-zag element that adds a touch of challenge to the otherwise soothing garter stitch. Wide blocks of stripes are visually striking, and when knit in the lovely grey shades of Rosy Green Wool‘s Cheeky Merino Joy they’re reminiscent of the German Autobahn.
Each little twist and turn in the stripe pattern is simply a reminder that the journey will have some obstacles – and you’ll make it through. We’ve all hit an unexpected bump or detour in life. (Or two, or three, or…!) Toss this fabulous statement shawl over your shoulders and remember: The journey only makes you stronger.
