Faerie Queene

Faerie Queen Shawl from Poetic Crochet

Faerie Queene was inspired by the small, detailed patterns adorning the elaborate royal fashions of the Elizabethan era. This crochet shawl uses mini-patterns to offer a modern take on Tudor fashion, worked in crisp linen yarn with excellent stitch definition. The inky blue color shown here reminds me of the color of a late-summer sky just after sunset. Pair Faerie Queene with a simple summer tank for an effortless style.
