This German yarn is one of my favorites. They have blended the colors so beautifully. The shawl is a lightweight lacy pattern. The pattern does not skimp in the measurements giving a lot of looseness and flow to the final shawl. Be sure to get a color co-ordinated pin to make it a real smash. Pin is not for sale. This is wonderful in Spring, Fall & Summer in those cold restaurants. It does not look out of place in Winter either if the clothing you are wearing has some warmth and you need to perk the outfit up a bit. Although it took forever to knit, it is one of my favorite patterns of all time. So feminine!
