Fields of anemones swaying in the breeze, their simple beauty signifies that winter is finally over. Knit up your own colourful Anemone Fields shawl and watch it ripple in the wind as it flows from your shoulders.
Anemone Fields is a crescent-shaped shawl. Instead of a visible center, the pattern cleverly incorporates increases within the lace itself. It requires 250-500 meters of lace or fingering weight yarn. The shawl is easily enlarged by adding additional repeats.
