This shawl was written in honor of the 2017 Magical Fiber Fantasy Retreat at Walt Disney World in Florida. Three magical days of fiber fun!

Emma’s Yarn is dyed in Florida and is available Here

The lace section resembles a certain cheerful mouse who’s ears can be found hidden around the “world”
We love a good oversized shawl and this one is perfect to wrap up in while watching the fireworks after a long magical day or while day dreaming about your next visit….
Available in two sizes, skinny and wide, both are generous.

Mouse Ears is easily adjustable for more than 3 colors. The only rule is that you have the correct number of stitches in order to do the lace in Section 3. Other than that you can change colors as often as you’d like or use all one color. Get creative and have fun!
