There are moments (fleeting, though they may be) when we’re given the chance to choose a new trail – to change direction and blaze a path forward into uncharted territory. As much as I love knowing what’s around the next corner, there’s something invigorating about carving a path into the unknown. A little scary? Sure. But just imagine where that road might lead!

With rich, rust colored trails carved into a sea of coal grey, this shawl reminds me of the paths we carve for ourselves when we’re brave enough to steer somewhere new.

Trailblazer is an eye-catching asymmetrical triangle shawl with striped grooves and texture made of stockinette stitch, garter stitch and loose cables. Easy to wrap and wear on the go, you’ll love the versatility of this effortless piece.
