Pattern Description:

Arcadia, before it was a city in Southern California, was a region in Ancient Greece. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Arcadia became a concept, an idealized fantasy of perfect unspoiled rusticity. In the imaginations of western Europeans, Arcadia remained pristine, utopic, populated by happy shepherds and beautiful shepherdesses. The Arcadian Shawl is so named for its own faux rusticity, in which gorgeous luxury yarns are transformed into a simple but beautiful wrap. The lace edging for the shawl requires very little yarn, making this a great project for using up leftovers.
