flour·ish: \ˈflər-ish, ˈflə-rish\
verb: to grow luxuriantly
noun: a decorative or finishing detail; a luxuriant growth or profusion

All these definitions of flourish apply to this dramatic shawl, knit from the top down at a larger gauge for a more modern look. Cascading from the center out, the large, bold leaves make a lush statement, especially knit in a jewel-toned color.

Pattern contains charted instructions for three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. Size can easily be adjusted by using different size needles and yarn of different weights or by adding pattern repeats. This pattern is suitable for knitters with some experience (intermediate level).

Approximate measurements after blocking and required yardage:
Small: 40” wide x 16” deep (210 yds)
Medium: 50” x 24” (320 yds)
Large: 58” x 28” (400 yds)

Purple sample shown is the Large size; orange is Medium; pink and blue are Small.

NOTE: The Large size uses almost exactly 400 yds of yarn. Less rows of the edging can be worked if you find yourself running out of yarn and do not wish to use another skein.
