Roman Villa Shawl Kit

Designed by Caroline Sommerfeld


Each KIT includes the Pattern and the amount of Yarn required.

The Roman Villa shawl takes you on an archaeological expedition, touring an ancient Roman Villa; bring your knitting needles instead of your trowel to excavate the stunning details drawn from history! Roman villas embodied the ideal of living and were often built as multi-storey buildings with under-floor heating that many would still envy today. Decoration could be elaborate, with villas being completed with stunning mosaic floors, and walls decorated with beautiful frescos depicting landscapes, gardens, myths, gods, heroes, people, animals, household scenes and more. This shawl echoes the layout of a typical Roman villa layout, incorporating colours, textures, and stitch patterns that draw on this rich legacy to create your own interpretation of wearable luxury.
