FIELD (by Maxim Cyr)


This pattern is available in English and in French as a digital download. 

Are you ready for this relaxing knit? The FIELD shawl is beginner-friendly and has been designed to highlight the beauty of that special yarn from your stash. In my case, I used my own handspun yarn that I paired with Dyed By Delz, British DK for a moody low contrast feel. ⁠
