Field of Daisies
My friend Daisy’s wedding inspired a search for floral lace motifs. This shawl is a byproduct of that search. It features a large, open daisy pattern at the top and an ornate leaf edging. This versatile shawl can also be worn as a kerchief or scarf.
The pattern has been completely revised and updated, errors in the Fresh Designs version have been corrected, charts have been reworked and corrected, and helpful construction tips have been added to the pattern to make is an easier knit.
Pattern is worked from the center back to the edge using a modified triangular construction technique that stays on the shoulders better. Requires a basic understanding of lace knitting including double increases and decreases as well as ability to read lace charts. Suitable for intermediate knitters.s.
