I love playing with Variegated yarns and their co-ordinating colors. These two colors from Three Irish Girls are no exception. They play well together, mixing elements of texture and lace to produce a stunning piece that will see you through a Midsummer’s Night, no matter what your plans entail. Make sure that you block your shawl when you are finished- especially if you choose to use the Three Irish Girls McClellan yarn, a nice soak and block really opens up the eyelet stitches and the resulting drape from the bamboo is breathtaking
Approximately 80”/203.0 cm wide and 30”/76.0 cm long, after washing and blocking.
