Inspired by the stunning tulip fields of Lisse in the Netherlands and spring flowers in general, this generously sized shawl provides interesting lace textures and a burst of vibrant color for any season.

The lace pattern is simple, worked only on the right side of the project with purled wrong side rows, and the straight sides are worked with yarn over edging for easy blocking. The solid tulip motifs are combined with a simple geometric lace background, which provides visual interest on both sides of the shawl.

In addition, optional beads are placed along the bottom edges for a bit of sparkle reminiscent of dew drops on flower petals.
