The Dandelion Shawl was inspired by childhood memories of lying in fields of dandelion blossoms on summer days, blowing dandelion puffs to make dreams come true.
This is a perfect pattern for new shawl knitters and a wonderful addition to any wardrobe for those cool, summer nights. What better way to spend an evening than wrapped up in dreams?
The delicate Dandelion Stitch border complements the flowing lines of garter stitch in this delightfully feminine, crescent-shaped shawl.
Choose yarn in 100% wool in two contrasting, solid colours to showcase both drape and contrast. This is a really easy design entirely knitted on both sides - no purling! The floral border looks like complicated lace but is in fact a simple, elongated stitch pattern, which is very easy to memorise.
