Autumn Woods is a beautiful two-colour shawl with lots of rustic texture. The deeply textured ribbing looks different on both sides and is so enjoyable to knit you won’t want to put your needles down.
Strings of hearts run along the right side of the ribbing pattern and the other side has vertical bands of small faux-bobbles.
Contrasting colour stripes and lace border offer a dose of colour therapy. Have fun choosing your colours and cast on for autumn cosiness.
You can also get Autumn Woods in the 2018 Shawl Club collection.
