Embrace the abundance and luxuriance of summer with Verdant. Whether you need a shawl for a garden party outfit, or it is winter and you need a reminder of lighter days (but that will keep your neck warm against the cold), this shawl evokes that air of life in full bloom. With a sweeping “lawn” of stockinette edging and a lively two-leaf lace pattern in the centre, it ends with a border of flowers.

The stockinette portion of this shawl makes it particularly easy to wear, as it hangs beautifully around the shoulders, framing the delicate lace.

Constructed top down, this heart-shaped shawl contains a custom-designed lace pattern.

My grass-green sample is in Adriafil Classic Azzura and required just shy of 3 skeins (or 640 yds, 590 metres).

But of course it doesn’t have to be green…The stunning lilac-flower version by debsf summons up the heady experience of a lilac walk in spring, and is in Cascade Yarns Heritage Solids & quatro colours. Whilst ftmling’s version is the blue of a spring sky.

As written this is a medium sized shawl, but it can be easily re-sized by repeating the body chart more or fewer times.

This is an intermediate knit. The lace is all right side and contains only knit yarn overs. Instructions are provided both in written and charted format.
