Flourish is a weightless and ethereal rectangle shawl with simple lace and garter stitch.

The diagonally shifting stitch patterns add movement and interest to the shawl.

Both ends have delicate fishnet lace with narrow garter stitch stripes. The centre of the shawl has eyelets sprinkled along the garter stitch. And there’s no purling!

You work Flourish on the bias with increases on one edge and decreases on the other, creating a fun parallelogram shape with tapered ends.

You can easily adjust Flourish to different sizes and yarn amounts to make it entirely your own.

One skein of Fyberspates Gleem Lace (55% BFL wool, 45% silk; 800 m / 874 yds per 100 g). Shown in colour Copper Tones.

Or approximately 760 m / 830 yds of similar lace weight yarn.

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 60-80 cm / 24-32 inch circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches.
