Florence is a botanical-inspired shawl perfect for texture and colour lovers! Three-dimensional knitted flowers featuring bobble and slip stitches make up the unique trim that blooms along the shawl’s edge. Once the floral motifs are complete, short rows are used to shape the body, to achieve the very-wearable long, narrow crescent shape.

This pattern is the perfect mix of fun and relaxing - learn new skills through the flower motifs (which are made modularly and are a great ‘on-the-go’ activity) and then sit back and watch the shawl grow with soothing garter stitch :)

Florence Spurling designed for Loop London.
