A few years ago I was obsessed with creating illustrative lace patterns, most of which ended up simply looking messy. It turns out that there are good reasons that most traditional lace patterns are simple, geometric representations of things like leaves and feathers. A stylized representation of a pair of cherries on their stalks turned out rather successfully and the pattern flowed well into columns of
a simple geometric mesh pattern. And so I knit a shawl, but my design abilities were rather ahead of my pattern creation abilities and it took a little while to catch up in addition to simply finding the time to revisit the idea but I’m so glad to finally be sharing it.

The triangular shawl is shown in two sizes, either of which can be knit in lace or fingering weight, and is flexible enough to be made as large as you wish.
