Estio

Estio was knitted with 528 yds of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, color 6610 (70% Merino extrafine, 30% silk - DK weight/8ply).

Estio is a triangular shawl worked from the center back downwards to the edging. The body is knitted in two combined lace sts resembling organic forms. Transition rows are worked for the edge which is knitted in a simple yet expressive scallop stitch.
This design was specially created to show off the luscious qualities of Manos del Uruguay yarn which is incredible soft and warm. The beautiful colorway will most certainly brighten up even the most gray winter day.
