Ambah O'Brien's Sherbet Fountain is
a large, triangular shawl, perfect for wearing in multiple ways. Ambah
shares her inspiration..."I have long-dreamed of creating a design in this color
combination, which reminds me of liquorice and lemon sherbet, which in turn
reminds me of the Sherbet Fountain treat of my childhood!"
This shawl is a fun, fast knit, perfect for adventurous
beginners. Worked from the top down, the combination of textured rows keep it
interesting as it grows, with the contrast color adding something special.
