Knit yourself a gorgeous floral lace shawl.
Inspired by the beautiful crochet granny square garments I have been seeing everywhere, it occurred to me I could create a lace knit shawl joined together in a similar way.
A deep dive into creating the perfect lace square later and I became obsessed with all the possibilities this project lends itself to. The square block would also make a wonderful throw - as per the Radvent Throw.
There are so many options with this cosy piece. Choose between fingering or DK weight yarn and express yourself with a bold colourful patchwork piece, a neutral, muted shawl or try both, using a neutral and adding a bright pop of colour.
Perfect for stash diving, and the fingering weight squares will use up those 20-gram minis you’ve been collecting. Or treat yourself to some beautiful new yarn and knit yourself a piece to treasure.

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the Cosmos Blossom Lace and a pinhole cast on video tutorial.
