A large, featherweight shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) that is worked from neck to hem in fine lace yarn. An allover pattern of showering buds gives way to a flounced hem of vines and leafy stems; the entire effect is reminiscent of a light-filled bougainvillea or wisteria bower. While visually complex, this project is composed largely of simple-to-work motifs using basic lace maneuvers. This shawl would be a lovely choice for a special wedding accessory that will be treasured later as a christening shawl for baby.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
