Ripple Effect Shawl Bouquet
The Ripple Effect Shawl, designed by Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs, features two coordinating colors striped together and punctuated by a third, variegated color in feather and fan lace sections. Each section grows as the shawl gets bigger, and the effect is something like ripples on water!
Here we've assembled some lovely bouquets to accompany this pattern using Dandelion
(perfect for yourself or that special someone)!
