Bridge Street (Weld)
Do we dare call this a shawl? Bridge Street by Lana Jois, is the urban-chic, updated shawl of yester-year. With a dramatic wingspan, stunning interlocking cables, and architectural lines this is a shawl-scarf-wrap is appealing across generations. Bridge Street is worked end-to-end, starting with one stitch and finishing with the grandly cabled border.
This version of Bridge Street features our fingering weight, Weld. The original Bridge Street made in Forge from our A/W 2019 collection was such a hit we had to have one in Weld, too!
