Florence Shawl

| /

Florence is a botanical-inspired shawl perfect for texture and colour lovers! Three-dimensional flowers featuring bobble and slip stitches make up a unique trim that blooms along the edge of the shawl. Once the floral motifs are complete, short rows are used to shape the body, to achieve the very-wearable long, narrow crescent shape.

Florence Spurling designed for Loop London.

Loop London will have kits for this design in two gorgeous colourways. Kits include all the yarn needed to make the shawl and a Loop cotton bag.
