ETA 22 August 2014: When The Flowers Bloom Kit (PDF Pattern + Yarn(s) + Beads + FREE shipping worldwide) is available to buy on my etsy store
In the springtime, when the flowers bloom.
I’ll pick a dozen roses.
I’ll just hand them to you.
We can walk through sunshine,
but we sure enjoy the rain …….
When The Flowers Bloom is a half-circle shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked both wrong and right side but it is easy enough to memorize and knit.
