Flowers of Winter is a beautiful winter shawl, warm and comforting. It’s a large top-down triangle and super relaxing to knit.

This DK weight shawl features simple and delicate lace in a flower-like motif. You work your way through garter stitch stripes and Quatrefoil Eyelet pattern, alternating the two. The lace blocks keep on growing as the shawl grows. You’ll love knitting it!

Three skeins of baa ram ewe Dovestone DK (100% wool; 230 m / 252 yds per 100 g). Shown in colourway Heathcliff.

Or approximately 591 m / 647 yds of similar DK weight wool yarn.

2 stitch markers

Size 5 mm / US 8 needle. Always adjust needle size to obtain pattern gauge. Gauge affects finished size and the amount of yarn needed.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
