A Victorian triangle shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) to work from neck to hem in fine laceweight yarn. The composition is a treat, from its rosebud stripes to its botanical hem—a profusion of pattern that appears to be complex, but is actually very easy to work, with intermediate stitch patterns and wrong side rows almost entirely in purl.
