Inspired by orchid’s intricate form and incredible colors, I wanted to create a larger scale shawl that would echo the flower’s interesting shape.
Keeping the construction simple was very important to me and designing the lace in panel sections enabled me to do just that. I used an easy mesh pattern for the leaf panels to offset the slightly more complex floral sections.
To keep things straightforward, the entire shawl grows from a five-stitch cast on at the center top, the lace shaping uses only basic stitches and all the wrong side rows are purled.
Questions or comments about my designs?
