Here's another Civil War era shawl that I created for a friend. Since she was buying the yarn, I found some of the most exquisite yarn I could find and loved every minute I worked on it! This one is actually a Lion Brand pattern. It was originally a shawl to be made out of Glitterspun. Instead, I made it out of spun linen (yeah!) and used a much smaller hook and just kept adding rows until it was the size I wanted it to be. The first picture is me working on it at a living history event. The second picture shows my friend wearing it, oh so proudly! :-)
