This design was inspired by a trip to Alaska where the forget-me-not is the state flower. The tiny flowers on long stems alternate with leaves above a blossom border and scalloped edging on this triangular stockinette stitch lace shawl.

Knit from the top down, either the border or the edging can be started after any 16-row flower and leaf lace repeat. An option is included for adding one or three beads to the edging scallops.

This shawl looks great in both solid and semi-solid color lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.

Pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
