I have a beautiful orchid garden in my backyard that I enjoy
every day. I especially like to watch the buds grow and grow
until they burst open with spectacular blossoms. This shawl
was inspired by a stem of multiple orchid buds from my yard.
The middle ring of long rounds of chains and clone knots was
developed to mimic the long stems of orchid blossoms before
they bloom. Wear the shawl as a wrap over your shoulders;
slip your arms through the holes to wear it as a vest; or fold it
in half, drape it over your shoulders, cinch with a belt, and let
the remainder flow as large sleeves.
