Railings Shawl by Janina Kallio
This delicate crescent shawl features a gorgeous lace mesh pattern that gives movement to this sophisticated wrap. Our Sensational Silk gives tremendous drape and softness, making it perfect for a four-season shawl.
"Railings is a striking and geometric shawl that takes its inspiration from 1930s Art Deco. The shawl has pivoting bands of eyelets that are intersected by mesh lace stripes at their turning points. Together they create a clean and airy look with a dynamic feel.
You begin the shawl at the neck and work your way down. Railings is a surprisingly simple, yet interesting knit. And as it uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn, it’s perfect for that treasured single skein in your stash."--Janina Kallio
