This shawl was made from a pattern similar to the Rose Shawl pattern from page 108 of our Alabama Stitch Book. The shawl was cut in our white 100% organic cotton jersey fabric (doubled layered) and the ends of the top layer were painted with the Facets Stencil using grey airbrush paint. After drying, the ends were reverse appliquéd using the instructions from Alabama Stitch Book and the shawl constructed. After construction, selected areas of the pattern were beaded with white bugles in circular patterns. Finally, the entire scarf – yes, beads and all – was over-dyed in a color similar to our storm blue.
