This reversible and versatile shawl uses an easy join-as-you-go technique, which creates a beautiful two-colored line on one side and an garter stitch join on the other.
Worked in garter stitch side to side makes it an easy fast knit..

People keep asking me what it is about the name of my newest design Flower of Cebu. This is my answer just in case you want to know too:
I have dear Philippine friends living in the area of Cebu. Cebu (Queen of the South) is a providence in the Philippines which was also hit hard by taifun Haiyan.
They share everything they have with people who still suffer the consequences of the Taifun. They took in widows and orphans to live with them, distribute school material,help with medicine, rebuilt houses, dig wells….. you name it. I wanted to honor them with this design ). They are like a beautiful flower in midst of hardship…..
A good part of the sales of this pattern will go to support what they are doing…
