The canyons of the desert hold many mysteries. Caves and crevices, cliff and contour. Colours both pale and vibrant.
The Desert Canyon shawl evokes the subtleties of a landscape filled with diverse possibilities.
Interspersed with short rows, it is worked along the bias in a combination of two different lace stitches. Its unique construction offers exquisite drape and a chance to play with your favourite colours.
