When you think of a nautically inspired color scheme, a classic blue, white, and red combination is likely to come to mind. Mainsail takes those classic colors, along with a few new ones, and puts a soft, feminine spin on them. So, whether you’re out for a brunch with friends, or having a lunch dockside at the lake, the Mainsail Shawl is a perfect accessory to complete your outfit. Soft cream makes a perfect background for bright shades, and two-row stripes keep the knitting fun.
