I love Arrows
This shawl features a bow and arrow, inspired by my favourite archer from the Marvel Universe – Hawkeye. But even if you’re not a Marvel fan, it will look great and keep your shoulders warm in a stylish way.
Or make it in green for Green Arrow or Robin Hood… or any other colour that represents your favourite archer.
Eyelets form the fletching and shaft of the arrow, the bow is created by garter stitch on a stockinette background combined with an i-cord bind off. The arrowhead looks out over the edge of the bow and is formed by decreases with eyelets for more visual interest.
