Liz Taylor, in her iconic role as Cleopatra, drips from head to toe with the most astounding gold costume — her phoenix shawl was a Hollywood work of art.

Worked from tip to tip in yarn by Red Riding Hood Yarns, Goldwing's approachable construction and comfortable versatility will make you feel like a queen.
