Blossoms and leaves waltz together in this crescent shaped shawl featuring the Estonian Blossom Stitch pattern and a pleasing balance of lace with bead accents. Beginning with a provisional cast on and knitted top down, three sets of leaf clusters with beaded tips are introduced to the first spray of blossoms. As the dance continues, side, center and overall increases and decreases lead on the right side followed with a purl return row, providing both excellent drape and radial symmetry. Repeating sets of beaded leaves and triple blossoms enhance the outer edge on the full style shawl for which the pattern was written.
Instructions for an alternate leaf edging with an I-cord bind off are included.
Suitable for any occasion, the pattern is size adjustable in four sizes from small to extra large. The final row of the Blossom Edge shawl is knitted with a simple, stretch bind off method and blocking of the finished project is easy with moderate stretching. Instructions are given in both written and chart form with details on bead placement, abbreviations and knitting the pattern to completion. Knowledge of lace increases and decreases is required to knit this pattern.
