Opera Season III




Few figures in opera are as dramatic and alluring as Carmen in Bizet's opera by the same name. Nothing less than a large, swirling, seductive shawl would suit this temptress!

In this Carmen red rendition, the shawl is worked downwards from just a few stitches at the neck. This makes it possible to work your version to any size that suits you.

Choose your own dramatic colour to entice and charm.
