The shawl is shaped like a cape. Something for the grown up woman who still hopes to get her superpowers someday and would need a cape.
The shape ensures that the shawlette sits nicely on your shoulders even without a pin.
The length is ideal for those early spring evenings when you need a bit more warmth in the evening.
It is knitted bottom up so you have the luxury that the rows are getting shorter the longer you knit. The design combines lace with smocking and a textured stitch pattern, to have a unique look and to keep the fun of knitting up.
The pattern requires to knit a pattern on both sides of the shawl but is logical enough to make a nice project if you like lace knitting.
The decreasing of the shawl to get the more-then-half-circle shape follows lines that divides the shawl into sections.
The fairy aspect is underlined by the vibrant pink of the yarn. The paradox is created by knitting a stitch that looks like a woven pattern.
