The front yard of my new house has a large selection of various plants. They seem to bloom throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. One of the most beautiful flowers that pop up are the Peonies. Great big beautiful blooms that almost topple over because hey are so large.

The Peony Shawl is my version of these beautiful flowers. Knit with 100% wool sport yarn the shawl is delicate but knits up fast.
Knit in any type of yarn and any length to make this shawl yours!
