I made this Shawl as a birthday gift for my sister Carolina. She lives in the south of my country in a very cold and rainy city, so she needs a big shawl. I get inspired by the color of the vegetation of this part of my country.
Carolina Shawl is a big and beautiful shawl with beads. The beads simulates the rain drops in the plants after rain.
Hope you like it, you can make one for your sisters too!!
