Royal Icing Shawl
I've always loved Royal Icing. It reminds me of Gingerbread Houses, and those were my favourite as a child. I loved how the icing was pretty but sweet, hard and crunchy and could be used both for building and decorating. It always seemed like magic to me.
Royal Icing Shawl is a top down, crescent shawl with horizontal garter stripes and vertical slipped stitch stripes. It's perfect for minis or stash busting because you can easily modify it and swap out contrasting colours whenever you like, or make it larger or smaller.
