Sleeping Princess is the third design from the Little Book of Fairy Tales and is two designs in one - one for the princess, one for the veil enchantment that made her sleep and dream for so many years.

The two patterns can be worked together in a single shawl, in any way you please, (repeated, extended or alternated) or as two complementary shawls that can be worn together.

Play with colour combinations: perhaps a dark veil over a light princess or vice versa, or perhaps two bright colours used together.

Or experiment with layered textures like a delicately beaded silken veil over a soft woolen under-shawl.

The pattern is both fully written and charted, with pattern rows on the right side only.
