Marissa is a beautiful and delicate shawl. It looks very complex, but is not that difficult to work, as the stitch counts of the lace repeats stay consistent.

Thanks everyone! With your help, they raised enough!

Up until September 7, 2012, I donated 67% of the proceeds of the pattern ($4 per pattern) to the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk (directly to The Power of Pink Team - Terrie and Tracy). The proceeds from this walk are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.
