Denise Otter

$ 7
Denise delivers two shawls in one with this stunningly cozy knit. The Sila shawl combines Lark’s beautiful stitch definition with the soft and oh-so-lofty warmth of Owlet, for a truly one-of-a-kind statement piece. Knitters will delight in working through the two different lacy patterns, Estonian braids and (optional) fringe! Shown here in Lark Kittywake and Owlet Elf, we envision this shawl in a multitude of colorway pairings, from soft and subtle to bold and contrasting, and everything in between. What’s more, the swatch you knit for the shawl is big enough to be worn as a darling kerchief.
