Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increases
  • Decreases
  • Lace knitting from Written Instructions or Chart

Pattern Description:

Knit with lace weight yarn doubled (700 yds) or fingering weight yarn (350 yds).

The lace border on this shawl reminds me of the broad petals of dogwood blossoms, which grow on my favourite tree. Flowering dogwoods are a sure sign that spring has arrived in the midwestern US, where I grew up. Until the last chills of winter pass away, wrap yourself in this simple
but lovely shawl which shows off the hand-dyed yarn wonderfully and adds a little colour to your wardrobe.
It knits up quickly with doubled laceweight yarn on larger-than-usual needles. You could also use a single
strand of 4 ply yarn.

  • Stitch markers
  • Yarn needle
  • Blocking pins and/or wires

Suggested yarn:

350 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Skein Queen Delectable (knit doubled)
