The Hana shawl is a cozy and elegant shawl or wide scarf suitable both for wearing inside when extra warmth is needed, and for country walks. The shawl combines a thick rib of twisted stitches with lace, which is reminiscent of flowers growing in high grass. Inspiration for the lace pattern comes from Japanese stitches, hence the name of the shawl, which means “flower” in Japanese.
The pattern is both charted (with RS and WS rows) and written. The pattern includes a photo tutorial for working short rows, and detailed blocking instructions. Check two preview pages of the pattern among the photos for more information.
Quotes from the test knitters:
"This was probably one of the most fun knits. Very unique construction and well executed pattern." ThePandorica
"Don’t be scared of the short rows - they’re very well explained, and even if you’ve never done them before, you shouldn’t be afraid to let this be your first time! ZarahMaria
