Oregon Lupine Shawl
This pattern was originally published as Twisted’s contribution to the 2016 Rose City Yarn Crawl in Portland, Oregon.
The Oregon Lupine Shawl is a triangular, neck-down shawl with a center lace panel inspired by Kincaid’s Lupine - the unique, endangered species of lupine that grows wild in western Oregon. Its generous size makes it versatile to wear and helps it stay put on your shoulders or around your neck. Knit it, wear it, and think of flowers and butterflies.
