Stoker - PDF Download
STOKER is an elegant yet cozy triangular shawl inspired by Victorian-era fashion. Many dresses featured a vertical row of buttons flanked by pintucks, piping, or lace detail, to create a “V” down the center front of the bodice. I loved the idea of recreating this style in a triangular shawl using, bobbles, lace, and textured stitches. The optional tassels add an extra bit of historical flare.
