Bella Botanica Shawl

ronhuber's picture

I made the Bella Botanica Shawl (by Karen Strauss - free download on Ravelry) for a friend of mine here in Morelia. I used Tosh Lace in the colourway "Tart" and 3.75 mm needles. Quick and easy. The top is 84 inches and the depth is 36 inches. It took about 750 yards.
For all of those who are worried about men wearing lace, let me assure you that I will not wear this and it is really for a friend.

awesome work! I love knitted

awesome work! I love knitted lace. Don't wear it or make it. Not that accomplished in my knitting skills. But I do make lace(bobbin lace, tatting, etc.) so I do know the attraction and complexity of the work. Your friend is getting a treasure!

I don't know Ron, it's pretty fetching - you should at least model it for us.

Seriously, what a lovely piece! Great job!
