May Flowers Shawl
A lovely floral shawl featuring 4 different floral patterns - 4-petal, 6-petal, 8-petal and 12-petal with a ruffled edging.
This pattern features multiple yarn overs in a row to achieve the larger floral patterns. When working the next WS row after the yarn overs purl every stitch except the 2nd yarn over –knit this stitch instead. These are noted in the instructions. All rows, RS and WS, are listed in this pattern to make remembering these knit stitches easier.
Pattern is knitted on circular needles to accommodate the large number of stitches.

Gauge is not critical. Any DK yarn will likely work fine. For reference, this pattern is shown in Classic Elite Firefly which achieves 6 sts per inch on US size 5 [3.75 mm] needles. I highly recommend Classic Elite Firefly for the slight sheen it gives the pattern. It drapes beautifully and really makes for a great shawl.
