Flowers of Traken
The shawl “Flowers of Traken” is a crescent shaped shawl with a large flower and fan border. It’s knitted from the top-down and ends in the border.
The smaller version with 14 chart-repeats is more kerchief size and the big version with 18 chart-repeats is a good shawl size to stay on the shoulders.
The name is inspired from the Doctor Who episode “The Keeper of Traken” in which the Doctor lands on a very peaceful planet. One of the opening scenes shows a girl bringing flowers to a statue of the god Melkur.
