Nelumbo is inspired by water gardens: ornamental fish, aquatic plants, and the organic balance of earth and water. Alternating bands of stockinette, garter, and eyelet stitches culminate in a light scalloped border, echoing the shapes of water lilies and lotus flowers.

Designed especially for The Dyeing Arts Lush, Nelumbo is an airy shawlette that will work up beautifully in as little as 360 yards of your favorite fingering-weight luxury blend.

This pattern is also available as part of a kit through The Dyeing Arts. If you would like a kit, please visit to request one.

Errata: Row 1 of the Garter Stitch section should read “k2, yo, p to marker, yo, sm, k1, sm, yo, p to last 2 stitches, yo, k2”
