This wide triangular shawl wraps around your torso & ties behind your waist. Rohan women are practical sorts; can’t have the shawl flying off while they are working or riding.

Shawl is worked from bottom up, in the round, with steeking. Fair isle experience recommended.

Whether mucking out stalls or riding off to battle, all shield maidens can now proudly show off their heraldic background while keeping warm & cozy this winter!
