Tulippa is a blue-haired girl who lives in a tulip in one of Tove Jansson’s books about Moomins. She saves Moomins from a huge snake by igniting a bright light at the right moment. Children’s stories nurture hope that everything in the world turns right at the end, don’t they?

Tulippa is the third pattern from the Knit Light e-book. The e-book will include six shawl patterns in total.

The shawl is worked sideways starting at one tip, where tulip stems start growing. When tulips open a few beads can be added to make the tulips glow. The shawl is knit in one piece — the borders are worked as you go.
