I have been thinking about this shawl for a little while, before starting knitting it. Once I started I could not put the shawl down :)) The lace pattern is so addictive and most of all I loved how the lace pattern was coming out. I have played around with some familiar patterns for this shawl to achieve winding leaves and twigs effect. I choose Filatura Di Crosa Centolavaggi for this shawl and knitted with yarn held double. The yarn is wonderfully soft and warm and after blocking drapes beautifully. I love the green color of this yarn.
I got a little carried away and shawl came out bigger then I planned, but I do love big shawls :-)) I think it will be great to wear for special occasions or just by the ocean over a summer dress :-))
I have called this shawl "Once Upon A Leaf". My project can be found on Ravelry.
The pattern will be available after test knitting is completed late April early May :))
