Sevillana is a Flamenco style of dance. The shawl reminded me of the ruffled dress and lace mantilla worn when performing. This pattern provides you with three options for working a 1/2 (2/3 or 3/4) circle shawl. Select the size based on the drape you want. The shawl begins with a tab start at the center back neck edge. I recommend using a variegated yarn with long color runs such as Zauberball Sock, Kauni, Poems Sock or Noro Kyreyon sock yarn.

Yarn Requirements - Fingering weight yarn @ 230 yards per 50 gr.
