When you wake up after a freezing rain storm, and you find everything covered in ice you feel as if you’ve been trapped inside a snow globe. Everything looks so pretty, sparkly and neat. The forest is frozen and there is an eerie feeling in the air. Even though everything looks so delicate, there is some destruction, fallen branches, and some chaos trapped in all the beauty that surrounds us. When designing this shawl, I felt inspired by winter’s beautiful scenery, specially the aftermath of winter storm.

The Frozen Wildflower Shawl is an asymmetrical triangle shawl, that has a beautiful textured border with bobbles and cables. It is knit in garter stitch making it very soft and squishy.

The shawl has some lace details, to break the monotony of garter stitch, and the border will spark your interest.

This shawl was designed in collaboration with WoolBerry FIber Co. and has been test knitted and edited.

**** Gauge is not essential for this design, although keep in mind that your gauge will determine the amount of yarn you require for the shawl and it will affect the final measurements. This design uses most of the yardage (two full skeins) so be sure to check gauge and/or have extra yarn for the bind off. Some of my test knitters used a contrasting 20g mini for the last section of the shawl.**
