Celesta Crescent Shawl

The Celesta, a new instrument that Russian composer Tchaikovsky discovered in Paris, was famously used in the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Inspired by the “heavenly sweet” sound made from this instrument — words Tchaikovsky used to describe it — this crescent-shaped shawl is easy to wear and lays nicely without a shawl pin.
