Product details

Lin-Lin Shawl is a long crescent-shaped shawl knitted from the top-down in worsted-weight yarn.
The inspiration for this shawl is the little copse at the back of my childhood house in Japan. Lin is another way to read a Chinese character, “林” meaning woods.
I aligned trees in the shawl consisted of 3 sections, trunk, branch and bird. You grow trees from seeds, by the long cast-on, trunk is represented in 3x3 rib stitch shaped with short rows. Branch is represented in Cross Hatch stitch pattern with increases on every row to extend the wingspan. Then, I put a motif I call a bird on top of the tree, in ruffle edge stitch.
When you wear it, they go upside down, I hope you don’t care!
