Understated Woolen Windowpane

This very oversized heather grey shawl is a simple woven windowpane design.  Its not a totally plain weave, but close to it. It is heavy and wintery. On top is a ombre golden paisley and ditty embroidery.  It dots the piece and breaks up the monotony.  This is the color app dissection below. It sees a full range of colors. As a textile designer, I forget how nuanced the finished product becomes, once something is approved I move right along to the next piece. Sometimes the finished product is a beautiful surprise and sometimes it isn't... I didn't design this piece but I see its evolution.
