This Faroese style shawl is designed to be a botanical showstopper! The butterfly ‘wings’ feature a lush forest of lacy ferns, while a border of gossamer-winged dragonflies flutter above the hem. Gorgeous…but divinely so pictured here in Bare Naked Wools natural Cashmere Lace!

Shawl is worked top-down, with shaping at the shoulders and an applied (knitted on) lace edging at the hem border.

For a stole version of this shawl see Fiore di Melanzana:

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in shawl size.
