I had this half memory of Holly Hunter, in The Piano, being pensive-and-shawl-wrapped on that wet New Zealand coast [ which couldn’t be much more different that the wilds of rural Victoria in the height of Summer ] but when I did an image search on the Almighty Google, I discovered that she wasn’t wearing a knitted shawl at all
my own design, improvised in the spirit of the classic Faroese shawls but from the top down*. I could ramble on about what went into designing something like this, but truthfully the recipe is pretty much Vogue Lace Stitch Dictionary + maths = shawl
Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in Purple Storm
5.5mm KP needles
* apparently Faroese shawls are knitted from the bottom up
a] I didn’t know that
b] I like top down construction, so it wouldn’t have made any difference if I had known.
