This shawl is made for the Arthurian queen Guinevere. According to legend she is the May Queen and where she walks white flowers will grow to mark her steps. The shawl shows her greenery with an all over leaf pattern while the fringes includes her white flowers.

The main yarn in the shawl is Järbo garn Big Verona. It’s a colour varied yarn that comes to the stores twice a year and always in new colours. The shawl calls for one skein of Big Verona so it is easy to knit up in whatever colour strikes your fancy from the current colour range. The fringes are crocheted in Twilleys of Stamford Freedom Gorgeous D.K. on strands of Svarta Fåret Raggsocksgarn.

The pattern is labelled “easy” and shouldn’t be problematic for knitters and crocheters with a basic knowledge in both crafts.
