The Lan Su Chinese Garden is an architectural and botanical wonder, which fills one square city block in downtown Portland, Oregon. Stepping through the entrance to the garden, you find a tiny urban oasis, where the man-made and the natural are in perfectly balanced beauty and around every corner is another hidden gem.

There is a worsted version and a sport version (one or two repeats). There is also a single loop option and a double loop option. The samples shown are the worsted weight double loop version and the sport weight single loop version.
