Hanataba means “bouquet” in Japanese, and certainly, there are many flowers in this shawl, from the floral edging to the increases that look like hanging flowers. The shawl is worked from the center outward, in three different sizes, with the option to create a larger shawl.

Hanataba will be part of an ebook involving the same stitch pattern modified in different ways. The first of this series is Wood Lily, a hat that uses smaller amounts of lace yarn.

This pattern is fully charted and written out and is written in US terms.

Tech Edited by Axta.
