The Puaka Shawlette (Māori for flower) is an elegant, seemingly ethereal, and delicate shawlette. A bud-like stitch pattern creates an interesting texture over the stockinette and a Japanese lace pattern borders the edge of the shawlette for a delicate finish. Wear it draped over your shoulders, or wrapped closed to the neck paired with a shawl pin, this stunning project will be sure to impress.
