Named after my Aunt Diana due to the way the contrast yarn reminded me of the delicate icing that adorns all the beautifully decorated cakes she makes. The shape is based on the pi-construction, but it isn’t quite a true pi-shawl. The main colour works well with a gentle semi-solid, wild variant, or a beautiful gradient, whilst the contrast yarn is perfect for using up something left over.
