An asymmetrical garter stitch shawl with three columns of textural cluster stitches. Bassenfell is worked from tip to tip with a clean i-cord edging to give it a graphic feel. Originally designed for Cumbria Fingering, this new version in Luma has beautiful stitch definition and a generous, cosy feel that is much needed on cool Spring days.
