This week's designer has a great mix of shawls and sweaters. I'm going to point out three.
First up is Color Bomb (pictured). This is a fun shawl with colour blocking, striping, and the added detail of mesh openwork within the colourful stripes. I really dig this take on the basic shawl!
Second, I want to point out YoHo. This shawl relies on a mix of textures for visual interest. And to add a touch of uniqueness to it, Melanie's included a bobble fringe detail to the edge. Yes! Bobble fringe! I love it!
Finally, there's her Kelli cardigan. This simply shaped, traditional open-front cardigan has a cute lace panel on the back and a pretty, delicate textural detail at the waist.
