Valley Yarns #104 Aspen & Evergreen Shawl PDF
The Valley Yarns Aspen & Evergreen Shawl design came about through play with Fibonacci stripes in both warp and weft . The warp alternates solid and hand painted colors and the sequence creates a subtle blending of the color palette. The weft stripes shift and change across the length of the piece, keeping the eye moving and the weaving refreshing. Charlemont is a lovely, soft yarn and contains silk to give it a great drape and sheen, making it perfect for cozy shawls to wrap up in.
