Description

The color and loft of this variegated pink shawl reminds me of cotton candy. I made it of Homespun Lion Brand yarn, a very soft and warm acrylic yarn that can be machine washed and dried on Delicate settings. I didn't used to care for ruffles, but ever since I realized what a beautifying frame they provide for the neck and face, I've been hooked. Now I put them on just about every shawl I knit, whether made from wool or acrylic or a blend of the two.

The neck edge of this shawl is very long, giving you plenty of room to play with the long ruffled points however you wish. As you can see from the photos, there are lots of options. It can even be piled up around your neck to wear as a deep scarf over a jacket or coat. I fashioned the double button so it can be moved anywhere you want, even taken off completely, or reversed to show the other button.

I find that the weight of a trailing point tends to drag the shawl back off the shoulders or get caught unbecomingly on the derriere, so most of my shawls are truncated. This shape also means that they don't get caught underneath you if you wear your shawl when you're reading in bed.

The flower-shaped button on this shawl is made of pale pink glass, the darker, orange-pink round one is plastic.

Neck edge: 70 inches
Back of neck to bottom edge: 23 inches

Wow! This shawl is simply gorgeous! It is pure wool. It is warm, warm, warm. It is the perfect size for daily wear in cold weather. Perfect. It is versatile and will go with anything I wear. The craftsmanship is remarkably good. Better than good. It is great as in professional. The ruffles are so fashionable. There is not a single ounce of acrylic or polyester or nylon or plastic. It flew all the way across this country, from Vermont to Washington state, in two days. Wow!! This item is worth every penny I paid for it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope you make more wool shawls with ruffles. I will probably be the first to buy them as Christmas gifts. I'm so glad I found you on Etsy. Wow! And did I say thank you? Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!!

Beautiful sweater! We initially purchased a sweater that turned out to be a little tight on our son. We asked to swap it for a larger one we saw on Francette's site but instead of just swapping it for one already made, Francette asked for our sons measurement and knitted him a brand new sweater that fitted perfectly (with a little extra room to grow). Communication was great and Francette kept us updated along the way. Was even accommodating of our tight time line as we were heading off on vacation. Thank you so much!! Great experience.

This shawl is luxurious- the pictures just don't do it justice. The acrylic is just as warm as wool and oh-SO-soft. the ruffled edge adds a touch of class. And the button is ingenious designed to be fastened so that the shawl can be worn a number of ways. Not just for keeping cozy in the house, this is a garment you will want to wear and show off!

I LOVE my Christmas cactus inspired shawl. The yarn gives it a very graceful, soft drape and the colors are fabulous -- rich and vibrant. Unique, and looks and feels great. Nice seller, too.
