Bound in a bouquet or climbing up a trellis, how do you like your flowers best? Here the two are combined in a perfect blend of geometrical shapes and floral softness. The twisting of the flowers’ stems is mirrored in the central motif, forming a spiraling trellis.

Bring me Flowers is composed of a border with flower bouquets and a flower sprinkled trellis center. The stole can be enlarged or made smaller by adding or retracting repeats to the length and width. The pattern is charted, wrong side rows are a combination of knits and purls.
