This elegant shawl pays homage to the striking pastel pink and green leaves of the tropical Stromanthe sanguinea plant, with detailed, tessellating colorwork and a simple garter stitch paneled edge. The merino linen blend of Isager Merilin is soft and light, with just the right drape, making this the perfect transition piece into spring!
