Tulipa Espiral it’s a seamless shawlette knitted on the bias with a pretty pattern that combines a lace detail on the edge with garter stitch. It has a cool spiral and asymmetrical shape, being a fun pattern easy to memorize.

It works well with both solid and semi-solid yarns, with only one color or multicolored. See more yardage details in this project page.
The flowery stitch employs short-rows using the shadow method and strategic bind-offs (hence the shallow shape). The shawl is finished with a lovely picot bind-off.
