This need to knit project is the Asking for Flowers shawl by Kate Atherley. This pattern features an interesting construction that is different from top down shawls. Knitting on the bias gives the shawl a lovely drape. Garter stitch keeps the pattern easy and manageable for those times when you need a simple project that will still hold your attention with short rows and lace edging. Kate is a fabulous designer featured in the book yarn-i-tec-ture and many other sock books!
This must knit kit comes with three skeins of The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze Peppino yarn in the color of your choice and a printed copy of the pattern. This luxury yarn is hand painted in Canada by a fantastic dyer who learned dying from his mentor and maternal grandfather. Rhichard also is obsessed with French Bulldogs and has four of his own! Peppino is a 100% merino yarn in a fingering weight and has 225 yards in a skein. This yarn is squishy and soft - the perfect combo to wear next to skin and save for those special projects!
The finished shawl is approx 62 inches wide by 20 inches deep.22 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches
