I often use “Fabulosity” to describe the state of something “over the top wonderful” which is how I feel about this large, drapey shawl. It’s so fun to wear! Designed as a collaboration with Emma’s Yarn for my annual visit to Four Purls Yarn Shop in Winter Haven, Florida, there are slipped stitches, “made up” decorative increases, dots, mosaic, a dragon scale stitch and a statement border. All of this gives you nothing short of a statement piece of fabulosity!
