Once Upon A Dream Shawl

This shawl was inspired by the yarn, a beautiful blue and pink that instantly made me think of that scene from Sleeping Beauty where the fairies are fighting over the color of Aurora’s dress. So I made this shawl to be fit for a princess. It’s light, works up quick and can easily be adjusted to be as big or as small as you wish. Either continue increasing more or use a thicker yarn with a bigger hook. Share your shawl with the hashtag #OnceUponADreamShawl
