I was captivated by the beauty of Versailles, then when I saw The Grand Trianon and the Gardens , I was amazed!!!

CONSTRUCTION

This shawl is a triangular shaped with a beautiful Hitomi Shida design ~ with some modifications ~, perfect for the idea I had in mind

Is worked from the narrow point on the left edge increasing to the right edge, and then a garter stitch panel starts to emerge.

Once the body of the shawl is completed then you knit the Pendant border .

And for the grand finale, a ruffle in mohair (don’t worry It wont touch your skein if you are allergic to mohair )

To make the bubbles you dont turn your work ;)

The pattern has charts and written instructions.It also Includes a video tutorial for extra guidance.
