The Umbria is a shallow triangle shawl with long wings, allowing for easy styling. Wrap it around your shoulders, or switch it up and wear the Umbria as a chunky knit triangle scarf.
This knit shawl is easy to adjust by continuing the pattern repeat for as long as you’d like to make your shawl, or til you run out of yarn!
I love having a simple knitting project that I can pick up and put down whenever I find a few minutes to knit. Or for those evenings when my hands want to be making, but my mind doesn’t want to do the counting.
This Gemstones color way from Lion Brand is so gorgeous. I love the combination of pink, purple and grey. It’s so fun to work up these self striping yarns. I’m always so excited to get to the next color.
