About the design

Crossing Twigs Shawl was inspired by trees in the winter. The cable motif of the border, featuring lots of twists and turns, is reminiscent of leafless trees with branches and twigs crossing each other.
The shawl is a triangular shawl with slightly crescent-shaped upper corners; it is worked from the neckline down using the main color for the body and contrast color for the border. The border connects to the live stitches of the body as it is worked.
