The Phalaena flower resembles a moth in flight, and for this reason is also known as a Moth Orchid. This triangular shawl is worked top-down in two mirror-imaged sections. The Blueberry Lace motif is from Nancy Bush’s Knitted Lace of Estonia (p.137), and the shawl is finished with 2 repeats of the Luna Moth border. Five-stitch nupps were added between two yarnovers, giving the finished shawl an Estonian lace effect.

Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.

Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience. 
 


Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
