Please note for those who do not read charts: There are three charts in this pattern and there are no written instructions to go with them. The written instructions will be published by April 1.

This was designed in collaboration with Walk Collection for Edinburgh Yarn Festival and Kitterly - buy your kit from Kitterly here.

Botanique is a labor of love (to design and to knit)! There are 15 sections plus borders on either end. Each section is inspired by something related to spring, from blooming trees, to spring rain. There are also dot stitches, lace, flowers, butterflies, thistle, lettuce and catnip, and tea. You will have so much fun with this!

Please note that Botanique is an intermediate shawl pattern. It is a bit more complex than most of my patterns and requires some special stitches. Please note that there is a second PDF uploaded that gives you photographs of all of the stitch patterns.

Final Measurements
Final measurements: 92” long by 16” wide (29” wide on the diagonal). You can easily shorten the charts if you want a shorter shawl and halve the two honeycomb sections.

Materials
4 skeins of Walk Collection Cottage Merino, shown in
A: Chartreuse, B: It’s a Girl!
C: Flamingo, D: Pink Candy
or equivalent yardage of a fingering weight yarn. If you are not using a single ply yarn, I recommend a US 6/4mm needle.

I don’t recommend more than one highly variegated yarn, and if you use one, it should be used as Color A (the border and divider sections). Speckles work well in this pattern so don’t worry about using them.

Go and have fun!
