Oriflamme Shawl

Oriflamme: a principle or ideal that serves as a rallying point in a struggle.
From Latin aurum ‘gold’ + flamma ‘flame.’

Visual movement, color and textural depth create an overall rippling banner look. (To me the individual reps look wing or fin like.)

4 colors = 3 color stripes rotate at the half reps with unifying ‘Flash-Stripe’ color through each.

Written and Charted Pattern. Using US English terms and abbreviations - Glossary and Metric equivalents provided.

Worked flat.Long ways.

Intermediate Skills: Lace Stitches with R & WS work.
