this pattern will be available by april 27th. the creative coven shawl bundle will receive pattern updates immediately upon release. if you’re interested in shawl design, please check out my online course! all level 1 students receive peony as part of their class papers.

centre-out square shawls can be tricky to start, but they offer so many opportunities for creative incorporation of stitches in your design! created alongside my online course, the creative coven, this shawl uses the same lace stitch across 3 of 4 panels, all placed in different locations, allowing for many styles depending on how the wearer chooses to drape their shawl. unfolding like the petals on a blooming peony, the lace offers a myriad of looks from multiple angles. use this shawl to learn new skills and to look at your own designs in a fresh light!
