Rhodora is a uniquely shaped crescent shawl featuring beautiful botanical lace and delicate openwork borders. The shawl begins at the top with a set of short rows, which shape the crescent. The short rows are worked in simple beaded lace, which flows seamlessly into the botanical shapes of the deep border. The border combines leaf and floral shapes with gossamer openwork, which is sprinkled with small seed beads throughout for a bit of elegant sparkle (approx. 1050 8/0 3.0mm seed beads).
