880 yards (805 m)
Length: 70½” (179 cm), Height: 35¼” (89.5 cm)

Inspired by the delicate, round petals and
gentle curves of this beauty, the edging on
this shawl is cleverly constructed back and
forth in rows seamlessly. The shawl is a
simple lace worked top down and ends with
the striking edging in one continuous piece.
The color sequence of this hand dyed yarn
blends beautifully with the small clusters
of the shawl’s stitch pattern to evoke a
large bouquet of these lovely blooms. The
Camellia symbolizes desire passion and
refinement. Wear the shawl on a date with
your sweetheart or give to a friend going on
a first date!
