Pine and Ivy

Description

A delicate Victorian composition to drape over the shoulders or wrap around head and neck. Worked from hem to neck in three sizes (petite/medium/tall), the shawl features a dramatic horizontal hem, back panel in pine cone lace, and shoulder shaping for a lovely curving fit. Complex lace work throughout results in a sheer fabric with timeless beauty.
