A feather-weight yet warm shawl which Jane Austen herself might have worn over an empire waist gown. This shawl is much easier than it looks! It’s very relaxing and lots of fun to make. The shawl body is a simple repeat to showcase the stunning edging, which again is surprisingly easy--big bang for the buck! The drape of the yarn is the most important factor to capture this shawl’s delicate and elegant character. The original is done in alpaca/silk laceweight for an amazing fluttery drape. There are directions on how to make this shawl any size you wish.
