Using a single skein of fingering weight yarn, capture the spirit of Ailee’s elegant shawl with a modern interpretation of the treasure she has hidden in her bag as she voyages to a new world. Meant for show and splendor, this lacy shawl with its three delicate Irish Roses will add sophistication to any outfit. Suitable for advanced beginners, the double-crochet leaves and chain loops work up quickly with the flowers worked into the shawl itself.

“Mrs. Vance held up the shawl. It was a triangle of finely woven ivory linen with cheyne lace in pale thread worked around the edges and three large cheyne lace flowers attached at the mid-points… . All lace and frail linen, meant for show and splendor.”
