Taking its inspiration directly from nature, the Diatom Shawl mimics the ornate structure of its unicellular namesake. This impressive and colorful shawl is knit from the center-out, where the primary motif grows into ever-widening ribs of lace while the beautiful, scalloped edge is highlighted with a transition of complementary shades. Transforming science into art, this shawl uses a deceptively simple pattern to create this stunning effect.
Approximate size: 60" in diameter.
