A shawl is a simple layer of cloth worn over the shoulders, arms, and head, and it’s shaped as a rectangle or triangle. The Aeolian refers to the Greek God, Aeolus, the god of winds, as well as the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily. This shawl is knitted based on the style of those islands with any color showcasing the Aeolian way.

It is suggested to use yarn such as Misti Alpaca Lace Solids and Habu Textiles XS-45 20/3 Bamboo. The right needle size suggested is 2.5 to 3 millimeters for a small shawl, 4 millimeters for a medium-sized shawl, and 5 millimeters for a large shawl. In terms of yards of yarn used, it can be from 430 to 1100 yards, or 393 – 1006 meters.

The design of the Aeolian shawl comes from the Mohave Desert, where the God of wind blew away the sand to carve out a sculpture from desert rock. Surrounded by cactus, yucca, and the Joshua tree, the curves in the rock are similar to those in yucca stalks and agave leaves. It is a design that the slow, delicate look that is quite incredible in the simmering heat. There are signs of a rainstorm also within the design. This is a beautiful look that can be worn in any way to showcase the free spirit feeling the shawl has.
