A lovely floral shawl featuring 4 different floral patterns - 4-petal, 6-petal, 8-petal and 12-petal with a ruffled edging. This pattern features multiple yarn overs in a row to achieve the larger floral patterns. When working the next WS row after the yarn overs purl every stitch except the 2nd yarn over -knit this stitch instead. These are noted in the instructions. All rows, RS and WS, are listed in this pattern to make remembering these knit stitches easier. Pattern is knitted on circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches. Pattern is knit on circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches. Gauge is not critical. Any DK yarn will likely work fine. For reference, this pattern is shown in Classic Elite Firefly which achieves 6 sts per inch on US size 5 3.75 mm needles. I highly recommend Classic Elite Firefly for the slight sheen it gives the pattern. It drapes beautifully and really makes for a great shawl.

About Monique Monique finally learned to knit in the summer of 2010 when she signed up for a class. Her grandmother had tried to teach her (no luck) and her college roommates had tried to teach her (also no luck). Paying for a class seemed to finally make something click because by the end of the summer the teacher was showing her advanced techniques and within 2 years she was designing her own patterns. With a toddler in tow, running a web design company from home became a bit of a handful – especially when said toddler decided that he really liked to bang on keyboards. So Monique decided to start selling her patterns and the rest is history. Monique has been cross-stitching and sewing since age 3. While she is a great cross-stitcher, her sewing skills hover more around adequate. She also enjoys skiing, dancing, training for her first marathon and playing with her young son, husband and two cats. About Our Patterns Our patterns are all knit with plant or synthetic fibers for one simple reason – Monique is allergic to wool! It drove her nuts when she first started knitting that all the “cool” patterns were knit with wool and it was often difficult to find a yarn that would drape the same (ever knit a cotton sweater? You know what we mean!).
