Picture yourself wandering through an enchanted forest, where the sunlight dapples through the leaves and dances across your shoulders. As you meander along the winding paths, you come across a hidden treasure: the Nexus shawl. Unraveling the mysteries of this unique accessory, you find yourself captivated by its intricate design and mesmerizing interplay of colours.

Doesn’t that sound like the perfect backdrop for our Nexus shawl pattern? The name “Nexus” signifies a connection or series of connections between two or more things. And, in the case of this exquisite 3/4 shawl, the connecting blocks of colour come together in a truly unexpected and delightful way. As if that wasn’t enough to set your heart aflutter, the shawl is then gracefully finished with a delicate lace edging.
