Designs by Romi Asterope PDF
Asterope, named for the Greek historical figure as well as the species of butterfly of the same name, is a lovely crescent shawl with lace accents from Designs by Romi. Her shawl is the rich red of her love; flowery and flighty as her butterfly self. An arrow of lace begins at the neck and transforms itself into a flower motif as it moves down the back to an open edging. The pattern itself is written as a shawlette fit for your inner nymph, with an option to resize to a larger shawl. Stitch patterns are both written and charted.
