Caltha is the name of the buttercup family of plants. Those little yellow points of color in a summer meadow that you probably
remember from your childhood and maybe also picked little bunches of inspired the floral element of this shawl.

Buttercups can be found all over the world in both northern and southern hemisphere in moderate and cold regions. It is the perfect shawl to wear on cold spring mornings or evenings on a stroll through the woods or anywhere you like.

Caltha is a large asymmetric, three colored shawl knit in garter stitch featuring stripes and unicolored sections that are divided by floral elements.

The sample is knit in Wollkenschaf 4ply Merino Mix. The colors used were “leuchtend grün” (green, color 1), “Sommerabend (orange, color 2) and “Stahl -dunkel-“(dark grey, color 3). The exact amounts of yarn needed for the sample shawl were:

Color 1: 296m (324yards, 1 skein)

Color 3: 364m (399 yards, 1 skein)
