The stunning beauty of a square lace shawl cannot be overstated, as evidenced by Megan MacDonald’s Ernestine. Knitted in merino/mohair Piper, the floral lace motifs and picot edging on this pretty piece were inspired by a collection of vintage handkerchiefs, beautifully translated into an impressive heirloom-worthy knit.
