Anyway, I love those large shawls knitted in the round like my Shining Star.
I wanted a new and brighter shawl. I have been searching online for a pattern with not too long floats on the back and an easy yet striking pattern.
I instantly decided for the Cornflower shawl when I saw it. But buying an over expensive kit, with pre picked colors and where I had to change colors all the time was out of the question.
But, I came over the same chart, after a long search session, in a german magazine from 2009.
|The beginning - this it the bottom point of the shawl.|
I wanted pattern all the way down into the pointy end and had to knit and purl pattern the first 25 rows. Not a problem at all.
Then I knit in the round and cut it open when finished some time in the future.
I am happy I got the help and that I have already knitted one of these shawls. Anne is a great shawl designer and she knows all about it. I would not have come this far without her.
I knit this in Kauni. I use a solid green for the back ground color and a purple and magenta for the flowers. The purple does look blue when it is paired with green - but that is just fine. I would prefer another green color - but the one I like is hard to come by.
I am very pleased with my project. The pattern is easy to memorize and this is in fact an easy project with enough challenge along the way.
