One of my first memories is of the song “Raindrops on Roses“ -- I love the idea that you can sing away your fears! This shawl brings the song to life with simple raindrop lace and rosettes and a feminine ruffled edge. It is a half-pi shape that drapes beautifully over your shoulders. It can be knit as a bright and happy two color version using two skeins of contrasting colors, or using two skeins of the same color for more subdued elegance.

The pictured two-color shawl is knit in “The Hills Are Alive” and “Do-Re-Mi”, and the single color is knit in “Brown Paper Packages.”
