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.
