Desert Canyon

Desert Canyon Desert Canyon


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.
