A lighthearted shawlette or scarf to celebrate spring. What could be lovelier than unexpectedly coming across a carpet of wood anemones in a shady glade? Rows of flowers cascade downwards in this sideways knitted piece to meet the deep garter striped border.

Worked sideways, the size can easily be adjusted for different quantities of yarn. There are endless possibilities for colour combinations should you wish to gather different flowers around you. A fairly easy knit for the intermediate knitter, with just a little concentration needed when making the ‘flowers’. Every knitter needs a little frivolity when spring is in the air!
