The Seren Shawl and Hat are designed to be a pair. The shawl has bands of stranded colourwork that feature patterns that compliment the central intarsia motif. Cute little tassels complete the design.
The shawl is worked in three pieces: middle piece, right and left wings. Starting with the middle, the side lengths are picked up one at a time and worked outward from the middle with decreases made along one edge to create a shaped tip. Horizontal lines of textured slipped stitch run throughout the background of the shawl, adding to the hand-pieced look.

Depth: 17.75″ / 44.5 cm (without tassels).
