The pattern includes both written directions and charts. I just love flowers and Estonian knitted lace, so what would be better than to combine the two in a lace basket of flowers to wear around my shoulders during those cold winter months. Although the stitch pattern looks very intricate, this triangle shawl is quite easy to knit. I have included picture tutorials describing the more complicated stitches within the pattern. Enjoy my Basket of Flowers.
As with knitted lace, this design has patterning on the right side only, which allows for a rest row.
