The Secret Garden MCAL

If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.

The Secret Garden is a beautiful crescent shape shawl that both enjoyable to make and easy to wear. This shawl is designed with lace weight yarn in mind, but there is no reason why you could not crochet it in a heavier weight yarn as long as adjust your yardage and hook size.
