Viridis, in Latin, means green, verdant, fresh and vigorous, and often refers to plants. This shawl pattern is exactly this, a fresh pattern with not-too-long rows that creates a motivating knitting pace, with a construction simpler than most shawl patterns, and a pretty flowery stitch pattern. It is worked sideways and combines cables, lace and garter stitch, and can be made as big - or small! - as desired.

Intermediate knitter: good pattern reading skills, basic stitches, basic increases and decreases, basic cables.

Many things are happening at the same time in this pattern: a lace border, cables, garter stitch, and increases. Test knitters reported that they needed some concentration to read the pattern at first, but that the knitting was flowing easily after the first section.

Pattern includes a schematic, detailed stitch count, charts and charts transcriptions.
