Imagine sleeping under the stars and waking up surrounded by nature on a quiet, calm morning. Bivouac camping is a little rugged, but it allows you to immerse yourself in the gorgeous surroundings of the outdoors. The bivy life is spontaneous, scenic, and magical.
The Bivouac Shawl was inspired by the outdoorsy, nature-loving lifestyle. Is it a shawl? Is it a bandanna? It functions as both, so it’s up to you!
Speaking of decisions— you can choose to make yours monochromatic and subdued, or go all out with 4-color blocking!
The Bivouac Shawl is knit side to side and features eyelet sections combined with squishy garter. The softness of Dimond Laine’s Pebbledash will have you wanting to cozy up in your Bivouac all season long.
Wear it on your outdoor adventures (or your indoor ones)!
