This shawl has a variant of the main flower repeat as CEREUS. Beads accent the center of each flower petal. It has a garter stitch main body that blends into the flower repeats.

Pattern Notes
This shawl is worked from the top edge down. Short rows shape the crescent. The shawl has a 3-stitch garter stitch border on either side.

If you use markers between repeats, note you may have to move the markers to match the charts from line to line.

Stitch counts are given for the number of stitches at the completion of each chart.

The main flower repeat is a modification of one of the flowers in Herbert Niebling’s Creamohne.
