Antherea Shawl Pattern


Antherea is a genus of moth which includes silk moths. The wingspan of the shawl echoes the curvature of the moths’ wings while the ombré yarn provides the markings. The way shapes and colors combine in nature are a big source of inspiration for me, the world of insects is particularly rich in ideas.
