8958 Blooming Stitch Shawl
Inspired by the peonies and lilies blooming in and around our southern township of Troy, South Carolina, the main stitch pattern is a version of the Blossom Stitch found in many Estonian lace patterns and is expanded and modified for presentation in this pattern. The shawl can be started with either Five or Seven leaves and instructions are provided for both styles.
Beginning with a provisional cast on, five or seven leaves are produced in this top down pattern which lead into blooms that cascade and surround the shoulders and back. Increases at each side of this shawl produce a shallow yet elongated style in a semi-circular shape with a slight flare at the wingtips, scallop edging, somewhat crescent shaping and is finished with a chain crochet bind off. Once blocked, the lace is pronounced and drapes well to produce a light and delicate shawl.
The featured shawl knit with "Innocence"; Lavish Lace by BBKnits.com, made by following the instructions for the Seven Leaves/Eight Blooms Style.
(White creates shawls of great beauty and delicacy. Patterns for each shawl style are both charted and written out. No gauge is specified White but wants you to knit loosely. Swatching and blocking will get you where you want to go!-ed.)
