The first little drops of a rain make me happy… They don’t wet you. They rest on your shoulders like tiny sparkling jewels…
The beaded border of this shawl was designed to remind you of those first little raindrops… The body is worked from the neck down, with a crescent shape, and once it is completed, the border is worked sideways, with short repeats that are fun and fast to complete.
