Basic Skills Necessary:

  • use 2 colours of yarn
  • increasing & decreasing in pattern

Pattern Description:

IMPORTANT: There are changes to VAT legislation for digital sales in the EU as of 1/1/2015 which means VAT at the rate applicable to the country of purchase has to be added to the price. If nothing changes with the way Craftsy sells patterns by then, I'm sorry to say that I'll be withdrawing my patterns from sale at the end of 2014. Sorry to disappoint, but as a micro business, there is no other way unfortunately. My patterns will still be available on Ravelry, Loveknitting & Patternfish.

A lighthearted shawlette or scarf to celebrate spring. What could be lovelier than unexpectedly coming across a carpet of wood anemones in a shady glade. Rows of flowers cascade downwards in this sideways knitted piece to meet the deep garter striped border.

The size can easily be adjust for different quantities of yarn and there are endless possibilities for colour combinations should you wish to gather different flowers around you. A fairly easy knit for the intermediate knitter, with just a little concentration needed when making the 'flowers'. Every knitter needs a little frivolity when spring is in the air!

The detailed instructions are fully written as well as charted throughout.

The pattern has been fully tech edited and tested.

About the designer

I live in rural mid Wales in a small house, well insulated with yarn. When not compulsively knitting shawls, I can be found pottering in my garden and finding inspiration from the welsh ...
