I love playing with Variegated yarns and their co-ordinating colors. These two colors from Three Irish Girls are no exception. They play well together, mixing elements of texture and lace to produce a stunning piece that will see you through a Midsummer’s Night, no matter what your plans entail. Make sure that you block your shawl when you are finished- especially if you choose to use the Three Irish Girls McClellan yarn, a nice soak and block really opens up the eyelet stitches and the resulting drape from the bamboo is breathtaking

This pattern is an updated version of my β€œWings of a Prayer” pattern that I designed for Stitch&Unwind. This new version uses a different yarn, weight, and has a different number of repeat rows, along with an option ruffled edge..
