From the designer: I was in the Air Force for almost seven years following college. I was fortunate (although I didn't feel so at the time as I was a newlywed and my husband was deployed to Afghanistan) to spend a year in South Korea, the "Land of the Morning Calm". As I reflect upon my year there, falling in love with South Korea, the food, the opportunities, the absolutely astonishing cities and nightlife, I can't help but hope that I can bring my family there someday.
Hongdae is an extremely fun area in Seoul (especially if you're college age, and have a passion for drinks mixed with Soju!). The city lights, neon signs, and energy of this neighborhood inspired this funky shawl. I hope you enjoy it!
This shawl is knit from the top down, modularly, using mosaic slipped stitches for the colorwork sections.
