This is a thin crescent shaped, sideways shawl that was inspired by the blue flowers accenting a Summer Garden. It is said that a “blue flower is a symbol of inspiration, standing for desire, love and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. It symbolizes hope and the beauty of all things. The pattern is dense with a delicate border, providing just enough warmth on those cool summer evenings. The chosen yarn for the sample is Desert Vista Dyeworks Vior Gradiant in the Blue Jeans color way. The gradiant and vibrant toning creates a look with excellent stitch definition and drape. The size and shape of the shawl lends itself to be worn either traditionally or draped in a number of ways around the neck, enhancing any outfit for any occasion.

SHAPE: Crescent

NOTIONS: 2 stitch markers. Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

PATTERN STYLE: The pattern contains written as well as chart instructions. There is a key and full abbreviation list included as well.

DIFFICULTY Advanced Beginner/Early Intermediate.

YARN: This pattern is better suited for gradiant, color block, soild or tonal yarn to show off the detail of the lace.

SIZE: 65” x 15” (relaxed)

NOTE: You will need to weigh your yarn on a scale before you start, and as you knit this shawl. If you are not using a scale, you MUST swatch to get gauge and follow the repeats of the sample.

The beauty of the construction of this shawl is you can make as small or as large as you would like, repeating the sections according to your OWN skein’s yardage, enabling you to use very close to the entire skein of yarn.
