Neon Beast

This piece throws me right back to July! Oh, all those memories: Unwind Brighton, a few wonderful days in London, the most wonderful guests we had! All in all - warm Summer and holidays! This is probably just the right time to release a piece with all these Summery and relaxed fun moments intertwined in it - my Neon Beast shawl.

Now this shawl will lighten up the gray days of the Autumn and the color choices are limitless! Easy and fun, just like any design with garter stitch, stripes and short rows (yes, my three favorite things!).

This huge shawl is as close to being fluorescent as possible with soft merino or merino-blend yarn! These garter stitch ridges almost glow in the dark. The fun shape is created with short rows making the shawl super easy to wear.
