    Talk about a showstopper! If the eye-catching fringe doesn’t get your attention, the bold, graphic mosaic patterning sure will. The Riu Shawl is a 3-color, triangle shawl, knit top-down in your favorite DK weight yarn. This shawl works both as a stunning statement piece to dress up any outfit, or simply a beautiful shawl to toss over your shoulders on those cooler summer days.
