Notes From the Designer:

•Ondinea is a variety of water lily native to Australia. This semicircular shawl blends all the hues in the Majestic Water Lilies collection, from deep blues through lush greens to vibrant pinks. Fading one color into the next is already calculated into the instructions using no more than two colors at a time; carry the unused color up the edge with a simple twist at the start of each right side row.

•Featuring a garter tab start (video link provided), Ondinea progresses from simple increases and stockinette stitches to easy lace stitches that end with a floral border and picot bind-off.

•Truly a gorgeous, floating, shimmering design that’ll make you feel as if you’re wrapped in flowers! Magical!
