The idea of reimagining the Arts and Crafts Movement in our time was the inspiration behind this modern filet-crochet shawl. This rectangular shawl stays true to classic filet crochet, using void and filled spaces to create a pattern. The modern invention is all in the material: a wonderfully vibrant silk-blend yarn. Named after William Morris’s first daughter, Jane Alice, I like to imagine a modern young version of her wearing this shawl with jeans to the local flower market.
