This is Knit me a garden, a beautiful crescent shaped shawl knitted in colorful and texture rich yarns. It’s worked from the top down in Garter and Stockinette stitch followed by a beautiful lace border. The colors as shown really do remind one of a garden, don’t they?
Aah, I can just smell it….
Take a break and knit a garden for yourself~

The pattern is written, has a lace chart and it was tech edited and test knitted. This test knit had the most ever test knitters! I just couldn’t turn any away, so it simply became the more the merrier….

The shawl measures as shown in wingspan 82“, the height in the middle is 16“ though it can easily be made bigger in the middle section. Remember though that the lace border has a repeat of 9 stitches, so increase in 9 stitch increments as needed in part 3 and 4.
Of course more yarn will be needed….
