Birch leaf shawl

In Nancy Bush's book ”Knitted laces of Estonia” there are many beautiful patterns of knitted lace shawl where the main motif is from the nature. The most common motifs are the lily of the valley and various types of leaf and twigs. One of my favourites is this triangular shawl where the main motif is a birch leaf. The shawl is very easy and fast to knit. I chose an off-white Italian mohair yarn for this shawl, which was the only lace weight yarn I found at my local yarn supplier. This shawl probably looks good in many colours. In Nancy Bush's book, the shawl is in a lovely soft beige colour.
