The Sangaku Shawl, from the cover of knit.wear Fall/Winter 2016 is a lesson in simplicity and elegance. Melanie Berg has created an instant classic by combining a simple garter stitch with lines of solid and interrupted color of varying thicknesses. The color combination is stunning on this oversized shawl, made of Manos del Uruguay Clara, a fully merino wool yarn. The two-handed knitting technique will make this shawl fly off the needles so that you can wear it before the fall is over!
