About:

Blütenblätter is a two-color shawl in mainly stockinette, with some striping color changes, lace panels, and a garter border.
Blütenblätter is German for petals or flower petals, the name is tied in with the lace of the shawl. Blütenblätter was inspired by the fresh beauty of the blossoming trees surrounding our neighborhood in the spring.
It can be knit in two, or even more colors, making it a perfect project for stash busting. This is a written pattern and mini charts are provided for the lace sections, and that is also within reach of an adventurous new shawl knitter if knitted a few shawls before.
