I was inspired to design this shawl when I saw the cover of Spin-Off summer 2013. I had some yarn in my stash already dyed the same color. I flipped to the pattern and thought about making in differently. I liked the little flower type motif but couldn’t get exactly what I wanted so I kept changing it and added a bead. Once I figured out my plan it knit up very quickly. The teeth have a classic flower motif, the border is Shetland rose buds and the center is my creation. I hope that you enjoy it!
