Sunlight on the Forest Floor
Coax out your inner wood sprite with this ethereal shawl. It’s a gentle, feminine piece that will add an extra layer of warmth to most any outfit. The lace is worked end-to-end, with the body stitches picked up and shaped with short rows to create a crescent that shows off long-repeat variegated yarns magnificently. Or, try with a solid color and a contrasting lace edging for a fun look.
