This is a modern interpretation of the classic Irish lacy rose. A hexagon motif featuring flowers and leaves combined with picots and arches. The kid mohair yarn makes it feel like you’re wearing a cloud over your shoulders, and the glass beads along the edges gives it the perfect amount of sparkle for a special occasion.
