Gwen Mini Shawl

| /

Designed for the Qing Fibre 2023 advent calendar, Gwen is a fun and colourful top-down triangular shawl that uses 9 tones of fingering weight yarn. Inspired by the patterns within Welsh blankets, Gwen uses slip stitches to create multicoloured textured panels mixed with mosaic motifs. Gwen’s petite size is perfect to add warmth but not bulk, and is sure to brighten up any outfit.

Yarn bundles are available for this design from Qing Fibre.
