The ancient Celts believed that washing one’s face on the first day of May with the morning dew would enhance a woman’s beauty and health. This simple leaf pattern incorporates silver-lined size 8 seed beads which, if the sun hits them right, glisten like dew drops on fresh spring leaves.
Knit from the bottom leaf up, this shawl is easily adaptable for a small or large shawl.
Sample done in Oak Barn Merino.
