Ollivander Shawl

The inspiration for this design came from Kay’s love of Harry Potter. One of her favourite scenes is when Harry goes shopping for his first wand. He walks into Mr Ollivander’s shop and finds ‘his’ wand.

The Fibonacci sequence was used in this pattern to create the stripes. It occurs many times in nature and it seemed a very wizardly thing to use. The border is designed to look like the ladder Mr Ollivander uses to find Harry’s wand.
