Juno Lucina

My second babygirl’s birthday is June 2nd. I love the name Juno and was thinking about it for this shawlette. When I discovered that Juno Lucina was an aspect of the goddess Juno associated with light and childbirth, the stars aligned, and I realized this was the perfect name for this shawlette.

Construction-wise, this shawlette is fun to make and wear. The rate of increase is a bit different than a traditional triangular shawl, so Juno’s got much longer arms than many of her sisters. It’s great for wrapping around yourself during the yo-yo weather patterns of Spring.
