It’s a free pattern!

A couple years back, bought a shawl design from me.  I hadn’t heard anything about it again until yesterday.   Well, my design has been reknit in a new yarn, photographed, and is now available as a free pattern!

Without further ado, I introduce the Lotus Blossom Shawl.

I originally did this shawl in a fingering weight yarn (the Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere), but Elann has reknit it in Elann Luna, which is heavier weight and creates a wider shawl.  I really like the appearance in the different yarn.  The shawl itself is composed of two rectangles that are sewn together in a ruana shape.  This particularly shape keeps the shawl on your shoulders.  The edges are a naturally scalloping lotus blossom lace pattern, while the bulk of the body is a traditional English mesh lace.  While the construction itself is quite simple, the lotus blossom lace pattern is a bit fiddly.  It is worth the effort, though!
