Huacachina is an oasis in the middle of one of the dryest deserts in the world. The small Peruvian lagoon is surrounded by bars and clubs, and has increasingly become a launch point for adventurous sandboarders!
This fun three-color shawl takes a traditional half-pi shape and adds in short row elements to stretch the shawl in an wavy an undulating fashion, not unlike the many mirages you see when visiting Huacachina.
