FTS2015 Spring Blossom Shawl
Design by Eugen K. Beugler
Blossoms are bountiful on this beautiful shawl. Purl stitches outline the leaves and define the stems, creating an interesting texture in the stockinette stitch lace pattern. Knit from the center out, the shawl is cast off with a simple crocheted chain edging that can be started near the end of any 16-round repeat, making it easy to customize the size.
Designed for the adventurous knitter, this heirloom quality shawl will bring a bouquet of compliments through many seasons.
