Blossom Time Shawl, is perfect for the time of the year when spring reaches a dizzying peak of delight, just before the balance of the year tips slowly into summer. The clear brightness of sunshine glowing through the luminous pinks and whites of blossom trees. The drowsy hum of bees, tipsy with an abundance of nectar and pollen. What could be more lovely?
Blossom Time is a sweet crescent shawl knit in fingering weight yarn. It is medium sized, starting with a cosy garter yoke at the top and a body of simple-to-knit lace stitch, as delicate and dreamy as petals scattering in the breeze. The design ends with a playful border featuring a few bobbles and more easy lace blocked into points. As fun and easy to wear as it is to knit, the Blossom Time Shawl is a romantic accessory that will carry you through the seasons.
