I really hope this works, please let me know if you cant see the photos. It's, in my mind, a "traditional" Blue shawl, in that it's a shawl that's, well, Blue. Still need to add fringe to it. I do have a couple more shawls in the works. It's one that I knitted myself, for myself.
Most non-stretch fabric would work. I've seen more casual ones in cotton or linen, a lot of us go with fancy brocades (usually polyester, although silk is pretty!) to mimic embroidery as shawls are described to have vines embroidered on them.
This. There's usually two types of shawl. Non-stretch, more formal types, and then the knit or crochet, more casual type. The fringe can be bought spooled the same way you'd buy lace or ribbon. Same with the outline for the Flame. It's just braided trim that can be sewn on, or glued, even.
