Lieutenant’s Heart is the Swedish term for bleeding heart flowers. The name comes from an old legend in which a young lieutenant tries to woo a beautiful lady. She refuses him, and he throws himself upon his sword.

The Lieutenant’s Heart Shawl is a delicate lace shawl, knit from the neck to edge. It starts out with a relatively simple lace pattern which gradually becomes more intricate and culminates in a nupp edging.
