Different textures and colour-placements create here the dynamic details that still provide a surprising harmony in the final accessory.
Both the “organic symmetry” found in nature, as well as the decorative shaping used in Art Nouveau architecture inspired the form for this Shawl.
The obviously related parts of a whole are celebrated in their individuality, without having them follow any rules for perfect symmetry. Each section completes and complements the next to produce a balanced “whole”, where 3 colours and 2 yarn bases render proportion in varying and almost unexpected positioning and repetitions.
All techniques and methods are either explained in the pattern itself,
