The term “bloesem” is Dutch for “blossom”. For many, the tulip is seen as the symbol of a declaration of love. At the Keukenhof in Lisse, The Netherlands, also known as “the Garden of Europe,” one can see more than 7 million tulips bloom in mid-April.

Let the colors of your HiKoo® Simplicity Multi shift on their own, and marvel at the garden that blossoms stitch by stitch. Or choose exactly which color your flowers will be by selecting your next color sequence by hand! Tulip season can be all year-round in this cozy Dutch Bloesem Cowl!

Written and charted instructions are available for the colorwork.
This pattern was inspired by the Primavera cowl by Tanis Gray, with permission.
