Inspired by the abundant Victorian architecture in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, this light, lovely shawl by Angela Tong, knit up in our Botanica Party of Five set (hello spring!) is a gorgeous accessory for the warmer weather season that nears. Highly textural stitches in a stunning gradient add layer upon layer of depth, detail, and beauty. We can’t get enough of it!

What is your favourite part about your design?
I love the combination of stitch patterns that form the body of the shawl, but I also adore the gradient colors of the yarn. I think the knitters will enjoy knitting the simple repeats of the pattern stitches. The stitches are not hard but gives a highly textural effect.
