The triangular Krokos Shawl is a quick, fun project worked in motifs that replicate the emerging crocus buds of spring—something designer Anne looks forward to eagerly in her northern climate. Knitted up in DK weight yarn, this piece is warm enough to serve as outerwear for those spring days that inspire us to shed heavy coats; on wintery days, it will remind us that spring is on the way.
