Alim Shawlette

$5.99 USD

Over the past year, I have started devoting time to exploring my Jewish heritage and begun learning how to read Hebrew to have a deeper understanding of my faith and culture. I have always been enamored with the symbolism and significance of the Tree of Life in Jewish traditions. When it came time to name this shawl, I noticed that the lace stitches remind me of tiny leaves on a tree. Leaves depict hope, renewal, and revival - three things I feel the world could use more of these days. Combining these concepts brought me to the Hebrew word for leaves: Alim.


With an easy-to-remember 2-row repeat, this shawlette was great for knitting while relaxing and catching up on my favorite shows. 


The size of this shawlette can be easily customized by ending the repeat sooner or continuing on to make it as large as you desire.
