These colors remind me of an orchid. This design speaks to the hidden beauty we can find in flowers, especially when we look closely. Lots of shades, sometimes hidden, sometimes only visible when the flower opens fully. Knitting this shawl feels as luxurious as the final result, and this mohair yarn is as soft as flower petals - or as close as I could find!

Yarn requirements: One skein each of Colors A - F

Color A: Natural Pearl
Color B: Silver
Color C: Classic Dove
Color D: Dusty Rose
Color E: Orchid
Color F: Amethyst

Please be conservative with yarn, as this pattern uses every scrap of Colors E and F. I included notes on how to convert the pattern from a diamond shaped shawl to a triangular shape if that is your preference. Please note the triangular shape will take an extra skein each of Colors E and F.
