Peacefully cascading lacy leaves adorn this shawl. The leaves extend past the main shawl body and flutter elegantly with movement. The shawl and dangling leaves are designed so that they are attractive on both sides. Futhermore, the shape of the shawl will make sure it stays on your shoulders without the need for a shawl pin. Of course, you can adorn yourself with one if you wish.
The shawl is worked from the top-down. Each optional dangling leaf is then worked individually after the shawl body is bound off. Be prepared for lots of compliments when you wear it!
