Named for the water nymph in Antonin Dvořák’s opera, Rusalka, this lacy shrug reflects the fluid peacefulness of her watery world.
The beauty of Dvořák’s music resonates in the gracefulness of the lace stitch pattern that moves across the back of the shrug. Each Sleeve is worked separately, with differing panels of lace, and joined at the Centre Back. The Collar is worked around the opening to frame the final piece.
