They grow on every continent, in waterways from the heat-hazed valleys of India to the cool mosquito-plagued
rivers of far northern Canada. They have been famously inspirational to artists such as Monet, who painted them
continually throughout his career. Nymphaea, the waterlily, many-petaled and flat leaved, providing shelter to fishes and a danger to motorboats; spend a day on the water and you cannot help be inspired by their fragile beauty and tough endurance.

The Nymphaea Shawl is a top down triangular shawl with a twist, starting with a circular cast on and worked in the round for the first chart before returning to a more traditional knit-flat construction. The Estonian blossom stitch and lily leaves transition smoothly to a ripple-inspired garter rib body, and an arrowhead border with an option to add beaded details.

The Nymphaea Shawl is available separately or as part of the River Banks collection.
