Mercury Rising – 233


Designed by Larisa Demos

When summer temperatures cause the mercury to rise, we gravitate towards smaller accessories, both to make and to wear. This crescent shawl is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe for that touch of comfort to ward off overzealous air-conditioning chill. The garter stitch rows and short-row sections of contrasting stockinette grow in size, resulting in a generous overall length that won’t leave you feeling engulfed. Shown above in two contrasting hand painted skeins of Simply Fine.
