Gum Blossom is a pretty little triangle-shape shawl made with one skein of a plant-dyed merino nylon fingering/4 ply yarn from Gum Blossom Yarns. The embroidery stitch pattern, eyelet lace and a picot edge work together in this shawl to capture the botanical nature of gumnuts and eucalyptus blossom.
