Indira is an elegant, asymmetrical shawl featuring a unique double-braided cable, simple allover lace, and luxurious fisherman’s rib. The shawl is worked primarily on the bias, beginning with just a few stitches and gradually increased to the shawl’s full depth before the edging is worked. Short-row shaping is used to achieve the edging’s tapered appearance. The resulting generous wingspan offers the perfect amount of warmth and styling opportunities.
