Winter is on its way, so bundle yourself up in a shawl to help keep the cold at bay! Makariri (Maori for Winter) is a gorgeous oversized shawl, with subtle texture and squish, and eye-catching lace and colorwork. Let the garter stitch transport you to a scene of slow and peaceful living—it is a wonderfully meditative stitch. And when the lace comes into play, enjoy the present as you spend a bit more time and concentration to make the stitch work its magic.
Use your creativity and imagination to pair your three favorite colorways together to paint a scene. In my sample, I used white and two grey neutrals to reflect the cold yet magical feeling of winter. Perhaps you will choose more vibrant and warm colors to celebrate summer or spring? Regardless, let your intuition decide which colors to work together and watch the magic unfold and bloom.
