The shawl is knitted in two parts and starts from the centre.

Thanks to Ninjacassy fpr the pictures.

A stole or scarf to symbolize snow fall. It starters in clear weather and then the snow starts to fall until you can see the snowflakes and the first icicles begin to form.
The stole or scarf is inspired by the germanic fairy tail “Frau Holle” who with her household chores is responsible for the weather and when shaking the bed the feathers fly and become snow on earth.
The other inspiration is my friend Juliane who is addicted to lace knitting.
