Nature is full of Geometry, which is the inspiration for this Shawl. All natural symmetries are multiples of 2, 3, or 5, where the same mathematical patterns or forms are repeated again and again. We hope this shawl will provide you with multiples of fun as you work through it’s rhythmic pattern and color shifts.
