Lutea Shawl

"Featuring lotus blossoms in lace, this shawl incorporates a self-finished top border," says Law. And it is magnificent; knit from the top centre point outwards, it flows dramatically from cascades of blooms through to a bloom border. Law has chosen a truly iconic motif here. The more you look at this shawl, the more the lotus blossom motif takes on other symbolisms. You can imagine domes lined with this patterning in mosaics-- and yet the whole would be equally at home in a William Morris Arts and Crafts house. Extraordinary. Gauge given is after blocking.
