Circular shawl, worked flat, cut up the center for ease of wear. There are leaf and other floral elements which adds just the right oomph where needed. The 8 panels individually make a petal, together they make a lovely flower. Course now I’ve said too much as this is supposed to be a mystery, as always all original lace and cables. You will want to wear your flower all of the time. Initially worked as a 5 clue MKAL which will begin end of May, 2017.
