Delicious Autumn Shawl
My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
Delicious Autumn is a beaded, fingering weight, crescent-shaped shawl with a leaf lace border. The shawl is worked top down and is embellished with beads in the lace section.
The lace pattern is both written and charted.
The pattern is available in screen-reader friendly, low vision format as well. The accessible formatted version of this pattern uses all black 24 point Arial font, no columns, no italics, and has fully written instructions. The chart is not needed. Minimal abbreviations are used and the pattern has been tested with Adobe Read Out Loud for screen reader clarity.
Note that when you purchase this pattern, you'll receive both the regular pattern PDF and the screen-reader friendly PDF in a zipped file as part of your download.
