Rain falling, meadows greening, flowers blooming. Spring. The Spring Meadows Shawl is a lightweight boomerang-shaped shawl comprised of four stitch patterns representing the fresh leaves, rain, meadows, and flora typical of springtime. To me, the garter stitch sections resemble meadows (it reminds me of plain fields of grass), the dropped stitches resemble the rain, the leaves represent leaves, and the floral mesh lace is a reference to floral vines.

This pattern includes 2 PDF download files: one for the written instructions and one for the charted instructions. If you are looking for additional resources for this design, you can learn all about the shawl’s design inspiration, and find color and alternative yarn recommendations.

This design was created as a collaboration with The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For. If you have the means, I highly recommend checking out their amazing colorway options!

The stitch patterns used in this shawl are intermediate level. They require some attention, specifically for the floral mesh lace section. The leaves require some attention at first, but they can also be memorized. Specific techniques in the pattern include working stitches together through the back loop, SKP, SSK, and yarn overs. These techniques all have linked video tutorials within the pattern.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of my test knitters and my tech editor for this pattern, Joanna / Precision TE.
