Next up in the Year of the Grimm, our dear Reggie inspired the colors for this shawl. Shawl? Not really, more like a scarf with swagger as this is an elongated scarf with just a nod at being a shawl down the back. Walking through the forest to bring the dreaded apple to Snow, our evil queen would have worn a shawl like this, crossed about and tied, we’ll leave you to toss it around your neck for a more modern feel. Beads are just on the far sides of the edging to give them added weight, helping the lace to stand out and gives a nod to Reggies awesome costumes. The yarn we choose will drape really well and feels amazing on, see if you don’t strut like the queen.
