Fireweed is most eye-catching due to its brilliant pink floral spires blooming at the tops of tall, majestic, leafy stems. As the legend goes, when the fireweed reaches its full splendor, and pink blossoms ascend all the way to the top of the flower, winter will begin in six weeks.
Herald the summer by knitting this shawl with stockinette st body and a lavish edging of eyelet stems and lace blossoms.
The size can be adjusted by working the St st part smaller or larger (see pattern notes for the number of stitches).
The sample shawl is shown in large size.
