lace shawl for wedding dress

 

Can you feel it too? I mean – this summer is the crappy one.

I don’t know about the place you live, but on this island, weather is so cold. I wear my fall jacket! Can you believe it?

No swimming in the sea this year. Not that I even love it, but thought is that counts…

So, here is a picnic shawl for you. Very lacy, very warm and very summery.

Beautiful accessory for your summer dress (if you happen to have sun and all this stuff I don’t have).

 

Size of the shawl:
  • length: 138 cm / 54 inches
  • width: 60 cm / 23,5 inches
You will need:
  • 250 g / 9 oz (915 yds) of fingering or light worsted yarn (I used DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk – I just love it – it is soft and silky and pure heaven)
  • pair of long needles size 4 mm / US 6 / UK 8
