True love may from one glowing ember spring / Twisting like fibers into strength so pure / A dance both elegant and spirited / Sweet balance manifests from needles’ tips

The asymmetrical, graceful, and simple Hermia’s Shawl begins at a small point and then expands, ending with an edge of live stitches. A lace edging is attached perpendicularly to the live stitches at the shawl’s edge, creating an elegant finish.
