Named for the Land of Silver, this shawl works up in the shape of a large crescent, allowing the ends to fall in graceful spirals. It is particularly elegant worked in worsted weight silk from Himalya Yarns, but many different yarns/ weights can be successfully substituted. The shawl is worked from the center back out, so you can also make it to the size you want.
Gauge: 15 sts x 22 rows = 4″ in Little Leaf lace pattern.
Needles: #7 (4.5 mm). Optional: a larger needle for binding off.
