In 2019, when we first travelled to visit and work with the women of KULLVI whims, we brought along a few techniques to try out. One of those techniques was creating a triangle shaped shawl, into which knitted lace motifs could be inserted. The women left after the workshop, and arrived back the next day with 9 different mini-shawls, complete with perfectly balanced motifs, and various borders added on. No small feat, this is a testament to a high level of skill.
We hadn't planned on doing larger garments like shawls right away. But when the pandemic hit, and the women were stuck at home with lots of wool at hand - we asked for a shawl sample. Kusum took up the task, and produced the squishiest, blanketiest hug of a shawl. There are two different triangle motifs in the body of the shawl, set between bands of textured stitches, with the triangles being further echoed in the border.
The first sample arrived in October, and Sarah wore it straight through 'til June.
