The Lotus Challenge is a project for knitters with a desire for adventure. It uses the same stitch motif as the Lotus Flower Shawlette, but unlike it’s simpler twin, the pattern is repeated multiple times in rotating colors.
With the purchase of this pattern, you can download the Lotus Flower shawlette for free at any point in timeby adding it to your cart, so go check it out
If you are already familiar with stacked increases and decreases, this pattern is a great way to explore their potential for creating intricate shapes and colorwork without stranding or intarsia.
