Suite for Short Rows


Like the rising and falling notes of an arpeggio, this swirling shawl falls like a musical cascade.

Worked entirely on the bias in Garter Stitch using a series of short rows, it has a curved shape, giving it a unique construction and versatility. Wear it close around the neck like a scarf or draped over the shoulders like a capelet.
