Aimatia

This pattern is available for $6.50 USD buy it now

The inspiration for this shawl came from the incredible tulip fields in Netherlands. The flowers seem to go on for miles, infinite, much like an ocean painted in a fantastic array of colors and you can find yourself lost in a veritable rainbow of brilliant hues. While you marvel at the endless variety of colors and shapes, you suddenly understand why a spring flower became a national obsession and such a valuable commodity in the 1600’s.

Aimatia, Latin name meaning ‘from garden of flowers’, is a crescent shawl worked from the top down starting with a section of stockinette short rows. The lace begins with simple shapes reminiscent of flower bulbs, which grow into strong stems and leaves, much like a real tulip plant. Finally, the blooms open at the top of the plants and give Aimatia its pretty ornamental edge.

Glass seed beads outline the floral shapes and add beautiful sparkle to the lace; however, they are completely optional and the shawl will look great even without the beads.
