This crescent shaped shawl is knitted in one piece from the centre top down and has a knitted on border. The main body of the shawl uses a rosebud mesh, while there are more bunches of roses on the outer edge and a string of roses in the border lace. Astrid ‘helped’ a lot, so this shawl is named for her.
