The Field of Daisies shawl was inspired by the floral trend appearing on the runways and can bring a little bit of the color and quirk to your wardrobe. The shawl is designed with the patterning of delicate daisy motifs and simple garter stitch borders. The daisies pattern is worked at the two short ends of the shawl (option 1), but it can also be repeated throughout the shawl (option 2).

Pattern Notes

The Option 1 of the shawl is worked in two identical pieces, back and forth from one short end to the middle of the shawl, with one repeat of the daisies pattern on each part and then joined together.

The Option 2 of the shawl is worked back and forth in one piece, from one short end to the other, with 6 repeats of the daisies pattern.

The white daisies are worked using the intarsia method with the Main Color carried behind the work. The yellow parts of the pattern are embroidered at the end on the finished piece, using the duplicate stitch.
