Originally inspired by the vibrant purple and green hues of my favorite flower, the double French lilac, this two-color shawl will work perfectly with your favorite color combination, too! Or try Syringa in a single color for a subtly elegant, textured statement.
This triangular shawl is worked in one piece from the top down and features columns of slipped stitches and alternating stripes of stockinette and garter stitch. Fingering weight yarn is worked on a larger needle to enhance the drape of the shawl. The pattern includes two sizes for a smaller and larger shawl; the sample shown is the smaller size.
22 stitches / 42 rows = 4" (10 cm) in slipped stitch body pattern, blocked
22 stitches / 47 rows = 4" (10 cm) in garter stitch, blocked

What inspires me? rich colors; clean, strong lines; modern interpretations of traditional motifs; and texture in all of its forms.
