I wish that all freshly picked flowers could last forever. With their long graceful stems and softly textured blossoms, these Cut Flowers are one way to make that wish come true.
Cut Flowers is a wide triangle shawl with mock cables and floral lace. It requires 400-450 meters of fingering weight yarn. Use needle size that gives you a nice lacy effect.
Knit nupps or add beads to form the flower(tm)s stamen.
