It is full summer now, the heart of June;
Not yet the sunburnt reapers are astir,
Upon the upland meadow where too soon,
Rich autumn time, the season’s usurer,
Will lend his hoarded gold to all the trees, And see his treasure scattered by the wild and spendthrift breeze. ~Oscar Wilde

The Cashmere Garden Shawl was designed to be fun to make and easy to wear. It’s unique shape wraps intuitively around your neck and shoulders, and naturally drapes beautifully. Just toss the wider end over one shoulder and wind around your neck for an elegant, eye catching look whether you pair it with jeans or formal wear.

The stitch pattern is deceptively simple, and the shawl is split between relaxing garter ridges, and fun, engaging textured lace. The combination of yarn overs and decreases creates a panel of tiny blossoms running up the shawl, and the edge is accented with delicate eyelets.

I designed this shawl with mother’s day in mind, and the sample is knit with a single skein of Lattes & Llamas Interlude yarn. The luxurious blend of Cashmere, Silk, and BFL creates a perfect medium for a delicate, textured wrap.
