Independent Designer Feature: Buttonwillow Wrap

We had the pleasure of meeting Rosemary Hill {web link} {blog link} a few TNNA's ago, and she is as lovely in person as her beautiful designs would lead you to believe. In conjunction with Knit Culture Studio and the VKLive show a few weeks ago, Romi designed a shawl, the Buttonwillow Wrap, out of Road to China Light in Peridot.

A beautifully textured shawl, the Buttonwillow Wrap is all about stitch definition. the main body of the shawl features a modified garter rib, a beautiful center spine that incorporates the increases into a teardrop pattern, and a beautifully textured edging.
