The Artus Shawl, designed by Natasja Hornby in Rustic Heather Sport, is a triangular shawl worked top-down from the centre out. The shawl begins with narrow bands of 1×1 color using the stranded technique. The border is worked using the mosaic technique, holding only one strand of yarn on every row.
Natasja writes of this shawl:
Artus is not a delicate, sheer layering piece; instead, it’s a substantial wrap with a distinct presence. It stands out and adds character to any outfit while keeping you warm and cozy. It’s both eye-catching and functional, a true statement piece.
