Zuni shawl

Drawing upon the rich heritage of the Zuni people as weavers and artisans, this garter stitch shawl features a labyrinth-like edging that is reminiscent of traditional motifs while also creating a sleek, modern statement.

The triangular shawl is worked sideways and is knit in an elegant merino/silk/cashmere blend. The front face of the shawl features a graphic garter-and-stockinette pattern, and the back face of the shawl features a subtle, shadow-like pattern of garter stitch and reverse stockinette.
