A lovely shawl inspired by the palms of Gran Canaria. The edging is worked in the light-as-air Tilia (kid mohair and silk) in a lace pattern than resembles palm leaves.
The body of the shawl is worked in garter stitch in New Zealand lammeuld. Every third row is worked in a strand of New Zealand lammeuld and a strand of Tilia held together, which creates a lovely, light fabric. The shape of the shawl is slightly arched and has the perfect length to reach and be tied around the shoulders.

Et skønt sjal inspireret af palmerne på Gran Canaria. Borten er strikket i det florlette Tilia (kid mohair og silke) i et hulmønster, så det ligner et palmeblad. Selve sjalet er strikket i retstrik i New Zealand lammeuld og på hver tredje pind også en tråd Tilia, så det bliver blødt og lækkert. Sjalet har en let buet facon samt en længde, så det kan nå rundt om skuldrene og bindes.
