Isernia is a long crescent-shaped shawl. It is a beautiful and indulgent piece, yet endlessly wearable, worked all in garter stitch at a fairly loose gauge. The resulting fabric is squishy and soft, and the shawl looks great thrown around the shoulders, but its length means it can also be wrapped multiple times around the neck for a gorgeous cushy scarf!
Isernia is an ancient Roman town in Central/Southern Italy. The beautiful purple recalled the Romans (for whom purple was reserved for royalty), and its combination with the stunning tonal, stony grey reflects the stone buildings and regality of the Romans.
