Gibo Auja by Janelle Martin
The design of this unisex rectangular wrap in two sizes (petite/tall) is inspired by the Viking rune, Gibo Auja, a rune to call good luck or fortune. The elements in this shawl are kept to a minimum. The star players here are the
fabric and the large runic motifs. While less airy than more open lace patterns, the strong graphic elements of the shawl create a statement piece.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
