I gasped when I first saw this romantic shawl by Ruth Nguyen. The design was inspired by a French song, and the pattern is available on Ravelry. Its construction is a crescent made with short row shaping. The yarn used to knit the original shawl is Malabrigo Silkpaca, a blend of 70% baby alpaca, and 30% silk; the perfect choice to create a drapey fabric and the dramatic effect. A challenging piece, but you’ll certainly be the envy of others.
