Lithodora

It seems like designs either practically name themselves, or they fight me every step of the way. Though the stitches for this shawl rolled off my needles, the name was elusive. I asked Melanie, the dyer who I worked with on this project, if she had any ideas. She pointed me toward a couple of gorgeous blue flowers, but the species names were difficult to pronounce. That got me going, though. I widened my search to all blue flowers, and a world of floral loveliness opened at my feet. The dainty blue flowers of some varieties of Lithodora all but match this stunning blue yarn.

Knit from one end straight through to the other. Knitting starts with a provisional cast on, or not, and ends with a dainty picot trim, or not. Beads can be added… or not. There are a lot of choices for making this your own.
