3 skeins Harvest Fingering in 3 different colors (1 skein each)
Three fabulous colors of Harvest Fingering come together effortlessly in the Divanyolu Shawl. The delicate interplay of linen stitch as it flows along to an eyelet trellis creates a wonderful piece of wearable art.
Inspired by the Divan Yolu in the heart of historic Instanbul, Catherine Salter Bayar describes her design as follows … "My love for this crossroads, surrounded by the Hagia Sophia, the Hippodrome, and other artifacts of our ‘Capital of the World’, inspired this shawl. The texture of linen stitch like that of its cobblestones, colors that overlap and blend like the mosaics and the people of so many cultures along its way. Intersecting, yet not dividing. The shawl ends in a rippling curve, like the coastline waves flowing along the timeless Bosphorus nearby.“
