Robyn Chachula has been creating innovative designs for a long while. Her Empire Baby-Doll Top (Spring 2007) is a true charmer. For our birthday issue, she has created a shawl with interchangeable motifs, so you can create your own favorite shape. Each motif is incredibly light and airy, but combined with others makes a surprisingly cozy shawl.
