The third in the Little Orenburg series; this traditionally designed Orenburg shawl is a more advanced successor to the original Little Mice of Orenburg and Little Gifts of Orenburg scarves.
The openwork diamond center is paired with a lavish beaded border, worked from start to finish in the traditional Orenburg style. Whether you're a first time Russian lace knitter, or a long time pro, you'll find everything you need to complete this pretty palatine; including both fully written instructions and two sets of charts, for both new and advanced lace knitters.
To complete the look, pair the scarf with the matching fingerless mitts; worked in the round with a beaded lace cuff and picot edge.
