Evoking the mystery of the forest, this wrap is knit in a continuous flow of bias knitting in Garter Stitch until the collar and border are added at the end. Enhanced by the natural striping of a handpainted yarn, it drapes in different directions, when worn in different ways.
Lady of the Forest, by Ilga Leja, can be worn as a shawl or, when sewn together, as a large cape or poncho. Part of her Shawl and Scarf Collection.
