A note about yarn choice:
Color: Original was worked in a solid color, which brings out
the stitch definition best, however it would work with any yarn color you choose (marbled, hand painted, speckled)
Fiber content: A woolly fiber type will give this shawl nice structure and texture, however a plant based fiber will give more drape.
