Funkia - the Swedish word for the hosta plant - is one of the first signs of spring. Considered a favourite snack of rabbits and deer, you can protect your funkia with a fine mesh.
Funkia is a triangular shawl with increases incorporated in the leaf patterns on a delicate mesh background. It requires 450-700 meters of lace or fingering weight yarn and is adjustable in size. Use needle size that gives you a nice lacy effect.

I'm totally addicted to knitting lace shawls and have now gone from altering existing designs to actually creating my own.
