Valley Yarns 716 Sequoyah Shawl
The Valley Yarns Sequoyah Shawl, designed by Mary Joy Gumayagay, is knit from the neck down using basic techniques to create an arresting textured shawl. The pattern of stockinette, purl ridges, and lace is reminiscent of tree rings: how annual changes in the environment influence the thickness and texture of each growth ring. This half-circle shawl is named after the largest tree in the world, and in honor of the Native American silversmith who created a system of writing in the Cherokee language. The shawl is knit in Charlemont, a soft wool blend with a lovely sheen.
