Pressed Violets is one of the three patterns, along with Parsley Field and Porcelain Berry, included in the Little Garden Collection.

Pressed Violets is a triangular shawl worked from the top center back to the edge. It has no obvious right or wrong side and can be made to any size. The stitch pattern is fairly easy which helps you sail through the main part quickly.

The cool shade of dry violets is perfect for summer days and one skein of Gleem Lace is all you need to complete this simple delicate wrap.

An option to turn it into a rectangular-shaped accessory (a scarf or a stole) is also provided.
