Icarus Shawl in MimKnits from MimKnits
Legend: Physical Scale

This shawl was inspired by a lace motif in Sophia Caulfeilds Dictionary of Needlework, first published in 1882. The top-down construction allows the design to flow downward, giving the feeling of feathers dripping from a stick frame, just as in Greek mythology, Icarus feathers melted from their frame as he came too close to the sun.

This shawl is large, making it wonderful to wrap up in for a stroll in the garden, or an elegant evening out.
