Picture this: balmy weather, fading light, good company, and a gorgeously curvy shawl full of attitude and romance tossed casually around your shoulders to protect you from the temperate evening breeze.

Helia is a beautifully versatile summer piece.

Knit her in light woollen-spun yarn for casual BBQs, add silk and dress her up fancy for weddings and parties, or play with colour and go for something perfectly in between for a midweek meal somewhere local.

Perfect for knitters who love a challenge and including charts and written instructions,

Helia begins at the top to create a body of simple, airy eyelets before adding a sideways border of delicious, undulating floral lace finished with a sweet picot edge.
