Light and soft like a summer breeze, Wild Cherries is an effortless knit with beautiful results.

You work the shawl diagonally from one tip to the opposite side of the triangle, creating a slightly asymmetric shape.

This delicate shawl delights with its clean lines and reminds of nature’s beauty in bloom.

One skein of Madelinetosh Prairie (100% merino wool; 768 m / 840 yds per skein). Shown in colour Rose.

Or approximately 676 m / 740 yds of similar lace weight yarn.

Size 4 mm / US 6 needles or size to obtain pattern gauge

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
