You can choose to make either the beautiful KOKON Haru Shawl or the Koharu Shawl. Both are a dream to knit. Just imagine yourself wrapped in either the beautiful Haru (Japanese for Spring and the lighter shawl pictured ) Shawl or Koharu (Japanese for Summer and the darker shawl pictured) Shawl. This gorgeous design by Eri is a collaboration with and is exclusive to KOKON yarn.
Haru-Koharu is a triangular shawl, knitted in one piece from the top down. I designed it with an image of flowers blooming. Haru-Koharu means in Japanese ‘spring and Indian summer’. Leaf, Dew and Blooming stitches are only charted.
