This beautiful crochet shawl takes its inspiration from traditional decorative folk art, incorporating large floral motifs and strong bold colours. Worked in DK merino it is perfect for keeping the chill off during those long winter months and cool summer evenings.

The shawl is constructed using 45 large, individual flower motifs, joined together as you work. Smaller daisies are worked in between, with a final decorative edging worked round all 3 sides.

The finished dimensions of the shawl are 125cm x 70cm.

You will need some basic crochet know how to make this, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow making this a perfect progression project for the competent crafter.
