There is a wonderful quotation regarding Blanche d’Antigny that describes her as ‘dripping with diamonds’. The lace of this shawl, with its increasing pattern, reflects this description.
d’Antigny is a triangular shawl with an increasing lace pattern and picot edging, worked from the top-down.
This pattern is available as part of the Courtesans
