The Mae Flowers shawl is in celebration of all things spring. Spring is a time for rebirth and renewal of the earth. The simplicity of this shawl brings out both of these aspects. The garter body reminds me of the furrows which are plowed into the ground every planting season and the lace edging is the plants as they start to blossom and sprout.


  • Yarn - 1 skein (approx. 400 yds) fingering weight yarn. Shown in: Cloud Lover 80% Super Wash Merino/20% Nylon
  • One US5/3.75mm 32” circular needle.
  • Seventeen Stitch Markers
  • One Tapestry needle


22 sts and 32 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch, before blocking. The finished shawl measures:
Top edge: 47 inches
Bottom edge: 66 inches
Sides: 6 inches
Center point of shawl from top to bottom edge: 13 inches


• Shawl can be increased in width by increasing the shawl by multiples of 30 stitches. Each increase will add two additional columns of plants.
• Shawl can be increased in depth by increasing the number of plant rows. Each section will add approximately 1.5 inches to the overall depth.
• Pattern knit flat.
• Pattern knit from the top of the shawl down
• Lace pattern has no rest rows.
