Crochet kite-shaped shawl
Eferhild is a kite-shaped shawl that is easy to wear and provides a warm, comforting shield of armour around the neck against winter’s cool winds. The shawl begins at the narrow point, increasing gently to form the kite shape. Elegant lace intersperses the solid crochet bands and the shawl is finished with a tassel. Eferhild looks particularly beautiful in yarn that has long colour changes.

Eferhild is an old English name meaning warrior maiden. Inspired by the legends of shield maidens and warrior women who have left their mark on history, this shawl feels both strong and protective and yet feminine and soft.
