Cenizo is the 5th pattern from the ebook Great Plains
- Crocheting my land, the Texas Panhandle.


A native plant of the Texas panhandle, cenizo, or known around here simply as Texas Sage, is a common site in open fields. The delicate, silvery green leaves, when touched, release an amazingly delicious and intoxicating fragrance. From summer through fall, this aromatic bush produces stunning displays of prolific purple blooms.

This long and narrow triangular shawl, is created from bottom to top, with the lace edging crocheted with just a shift of the shawl, leaving only 2 yarn tails to weave in.
