Tintern blends structure and refinement in a shawl worked in haloed mohair silk that softens the architectural quality of its stitches. A joy to wear as a shoulder shawl or a dressy scarf, the classic lines and vaulted arches were inspired by the design of cathedrals. The crochet shawl is worked end to end as a simple mesh rectangle, ending with lace crosses. The lace cross pattern is seamlessly joined and worked onto the foundation chain, with small open shells worked along each side as a finishing touch.
