Definition of Synthesis:
The combining of separate elements or substances to form a coherent whole.
Synthesis Shawl was originally a Mystery Knit-a-Long in the spring of 2016. KAL participants knew they were knitting a shawl, but not how. Synthesis plays with the concept of separate knit elements building off of each other to create a shawl.
