The unique crescent shape of this shawl is filled with fireflies and glorifies the border of dragonflies at the lower edge, stirring memories of warm, balmy summer evenings. The original hand-spun yarn takes advantage of slow colour transitions but the design will look delightful in many different styles of lace yarns.
