Pattern: Damask Shawl
Damask is one of those designs that grew from my hook as I doodled. It doesn’t look at all like what I originally envisioned, but I love its Victorian look. I was inspired by the meandering textures of old damask napkins and tablecloths.
Choose your own favorite colors for the flower centers — these remind me of a series of fabrics that were popular in the 1940’s. Toss it on over a sundress or a t-shirt and jeans to lend a romantic air to any summer evening.
EDITED TO ADD: While the original yarn has been discontinued, it turns out that Elann.com Lustrado makes a perfect substitute.
