Sindhu is one of the longest rivers in India, originating in the icy hills in the north and flowing south to finally merge into the Arabian sea. During her journey, Sindhu witnesses different terrains, including icy hills, rocky mountains, lush greenery and smooth sand.
Sindhu Shawl is an attempt to capture these interesting terrains. The shawl starts off with a mindless garter stitch which then transforms into garter stripes and the finale is akin to a musical crescendo – a pretty lace stitch pattern.
