Ephemera is a feminine shawl composed of flouncy ruffles and a lighter-than-air fabric. It’s soft and warm, making it the perfect item for a wintery outing that requires some elegance.
The triangle shape of this shawl is easy to create and the simple fabric makes it a soothing project. The first ruffle is a continuation of the body of the shawl and the second shorter flounce is picked up and knit afterwards.
This shawl is knit from the tip to the ruffles with a lace weight yarn in four colours. This shawl has one size (easily adjustable).
