Peargirl Blue Lotus Lace Scarf Wrap Knitting Pattern
A Lotus flower has many symbolic meanings… divine purity and enlightenment in Buddhism, wealth in Hinduism, and rebirth in the ancient Egyptian religion. The Blue Lotus was used to boost the libido in ancient Egypt, and in Egyptian medicine it was used to stimulate blood circulation and to slow the aging process. It has been worshiped as a visionary plant and a symbol for the origins of life.
The beautiful Lotus Lace Pattern comes from Japan and I’ve included a chart for the lace and written instructions if you prefer, with easy directions for changing the width and length, allowing the knitter to knit a scarf or a wrap. The lace looks more complicated than it actually is, it is a 16 row repeat and a great project for those with some lace experience and for intermediate lace knitters. Malabrigo Sock was perfect for this project, I love the softness and depth of colors. I used almost the whole skein for a 10 x 70” wrap after blocking ~ you’ll need a second skein if you want a larger wrap.
