Musetta

In Puccini’s beautiful opera La Bohème, Musetta is coquette and lively and has many suitors who give her gifts. Her shawl is a study in flirtation.

It is worked from the long bottom edge to the top edge in a panelled lace pattern. Its geometric arrangement of knit and purl stitches create a reversible fabric. The ruffles, bordering each side, mimic and resolve the main pattern.

Shown in Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3-Ply (65% wool, 35% silk), 230 m. per 100 g. skein, colour: “Straw”.
