The 4th Sonnet is named for Oliver Wendell Holmes and his lovely poem about autumn flowers - The Golden Flower.
Worked up in supremely soft Green Sheep Fingering from The Unique Sheep in a golden color perfect for the poem...
When spring is but a spendthrift's dream, And summer's wealth a wasted dower, Nor dews nor sunshine may redeem,-- Then autumn coins his Golden Flower.
This shawlette is worked top down and is offered with charted directions. A 2-row crochet bind-off edges the lovely petal lace at the bottom of the shawlette.
The twisted stitches in the body shawl wave down to form the stems of the flowers.
Sample is shown in The Unique Sheep Green Sheep Fingering. A suggested substitute is shown below.
