The Coastal Walk Shawl by Joji Locatelli is an exquisite asymmetrical shawl with a lace body and an irregular garter stitch border. This lovely shawl is a quick knit using 2 skeins of Malabrigo Susurro, a dreamy Mulberry Silk, Merino, and Linen yarn that highlights the oceanic theme of the shawl. Inspired by the beautiful Australian scenery, the sea-shell lace and wavy edges call to mind the shores and ocean-views of the island. Choose from our selection of hand-dyed Malabrigo Susurro to knit yourself this wondrous shawl perfect for walking along a blustery coastal sealine, or wrapped around your shoulders to ward off the cold wintery weather.
