Description

Wild Poppies is a beautiful shawl with a lace spine and border inspired by poppy petals; which you can bead as much or a little as you like.

I loved the original border pattern for the Rockrose Wrap so much I wanted to incorporate it into a heart shaped shawl, not just by adapting it into an expanding border pattern, but using it to add interest to the increases at spine of the shawl as well, creating a softer, more flattering shape than a traditional triangular shawl.

Adding beads to the edge of this cosy but lightweight shawl (as shown in the red version) gives it just the right amount of drape to sit nicely on your shoulders, but adding beads all over (as shown in the purple variegated version) gives a really stunning effect.

The petal pattern reminds me of the shape of poppy petals, hence the name!
