A new pattern now available from Ravelry and my website:

A luxurious crescent shawl inspired by the opulence of ancient Egyptian jewelry.
The color scheme of gold and precious stones is echoed in dibadu’s handpainted 100% silk yarn, Seda Encantada.
The yarn is held double; each color comes in two 50g skeins of slightly different colorways, adding depth and richness when held together.
Knit with three colors: 094 red, 116 yellow and 124 blue. The yarn is available from dibadu.de
