This Faroese style shawl is a botanical showstopper! The butterfly 'wings' feature a lush forest of lacy ferns, while a border of gossamer-winged dragonflies flutter above the hem. Gorgeous...but divinely so pictured here in Bare Naked Wools natural Cashmere Lace.
Perfect for weddings, special events and date nights...or anytime you want to wow.
Shawl is worked top-down, with shaping at the shoulders and an applied (knitted on) lace edging at the hem border.
