The name of the shawl is derived from the deep and vibrant colour of the Drops yarn. Mayil, translates to Peacock in Malayalam, an Indian language from the state of Kerala (my home state). Don’t you think its an apt name?

Its a very quick make! Once you get a hang of the pattern, the shawl will fly. I have added a tassel at the end for a little bit of drama. But its optional of course.
