The starkness of bare branches against a cold grey sky. The oranges, yellows, and reds, almost too vibrant to be real, of fall leaves scattered across a marbled dark rock. The vivid, alive greens and browns of a forest after the rain. The aqua and white of foam-tipped waves. Colours demanding to be admired, noticed, copied.
Sutton Shawl is a triangle shawl, knit from the top down in garter stitch, alternating with eyelet sections. It is the perfect canvas for colour exploration – Sutton can be knit in two, three, or five colours, in solid or semi-solid yarns, or in variegated yarns combined with semi-solids. Knit it in fingering weight for a drapey, light shawl, or in DK for a snuggly, warm option.
