A pretty shawl with a beautiful floral design and intricate lace edging. This delicate little wrap uses less than 380yds / 350m of laceweight yarn, so it knits up quickly – perfect gifting material or a luxurious treat for yourself. This shawl was inspired by a biking trip in the Highlands of Scotland where we came across an unbelievable patch of lady’s tresses orchids. You can read about it, and the other knitting patterns inspired by our travels, on our blog.
