The holes and triangles created by the Firebolt pattern can be interpreted as many different things, for me it’s anything from the bristles of magical broomsticks to an astronomic phenomenon. What do you see in these little shapes?
Firebolt is a crescent shaped shawl with a geometric lace pattern and a slightly ruffled edge. The shawl can be made any size you want to match your preferences.
