Have you ever seen Swan Lake? The outcome is rather grim for poor Odette. I think the swan princess deserves a happier ending, so here is a beautiful lacy wrap for her: “Triumph of the White Swan.” The long rectangle features ruffles, feathers, chevrons, and a center diamond. In lightweight mohair silk, it is an elegant formal accessory. For a less ethereal but still quite dramatic version, try using a fingering-weight yarn (shown in shades of rose and plum).

Skills Needed: Following a lace pattern; grafting. The lace patterns are provided in both charted and written form. The shawl is worked in two identical pieces which are grafted together.
