Extravagant and flamboyant, Cora Pearl, took Paris by storm. Frequently pictured with her trademark pearl necklaces, this shawl is a homage to her.
La Lune Rousse is an asymmetric semi-circular shawl with short row shaping, beads, eyelets and lace, worked from the top-down. The beads are optional, and instructions are included for both beaded and un-beaded versions.
This pattern is also available as part of the Courtesans
