Light as a feather, pure, delicate lace – the shawl also features cables. Ideal for a summer wedding either for yourself or as a present, even for the bride.
The Sheer Bliss shawl was named after a beautiful tea rose as it reminds me of this fine, soft flower. I recommend this shawl for people with some experience in knitting lace. It might not be suitable for beginners or if you want to knit something easy in front of the TV as it requires paying attention to the pattern. The pattern has been thoroughly tested and includes both written instructions and charts.
